My broodiest hen is a Silkie named Sammie...this is her 3rd time going broody and she's currently raising 7 babies. She first started sitting when she was only 7 months old, and now she's almost a year and a half.
My 2nd broody is a Buff Orpington named Ophelia. She's about 9 months old and raising a single hatchling right now. I haven't uploaded her pics from my phone yet.
Quote:I used to say that, but i found that if i feel good about the way they lived, i can eat them whether or not they have a name - and if i give them a name, i feel like i treated them better while they were here. So i name them.
And my first two broodies who went broody together were Greta (Pearl) and Mathilde (battleax). Greta's babies are 8 weeks old, and she's broody again.
