    One of two Colombian Wyandottes in my flock goes broody in the spring. She's good at gathering eggs from the other nesting boxes and I'm good at taking them away from her.

    Same, this is our first year ever having a broody hen, thats why i bought brahmas along with the jersey giants hearing that they go broody often.
    So that i could have a few hens hatch their own chickies

    RIR- Hatched 1 chick successfully. 2nd chick hatched successfully, mom drug the chick with her to go take a dust bath and the other hens pecked it to death, 3rd egg was pipped but I brought it inside and then it got shrink-wrapped because of humidity factors.

    Buff Orp-hatched 6 out of 12

    Golden Laced Wyandotte- started 13 eggs but I ended up putting them in the incubator because she was not being a good broody.
