    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.

    Never name a chicken, you may have to eat it one day. Named chickens never taste good, ask me grand daughter. She hasn't eaten chicken in years at my house.

    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.
  9. Esther. My second broody is Uncle Gumby, and the third broody chicken is Auntie Laamie. Dorothy, my mallard is broody now too.
