Okay so in November I had a buff brahma bantam go broody and hatched two babies. Then one of my black cochin bantams went broody in late December and hatched 7 babies, unfortunately 4 if them froze to death. I now have her in a dog kennel with a heatlamp and everybody is warm and happy. then my golden laced cochin bantam and my black australorpe cross went broody togeather and are on 10 eggs. The. Today I herd my other black cochin bantam clucking and clucking and clucking as if she were broody. So I placed some golf balls in her nest and sure enough later today I found her sitting on the golf balls with the broody stare. But its sooo wierd because it just snowed 4 inches last night and she still went broody!! arent they suppost to be broody in the spring?? i know have a phoenix hen who has started that broody cluck. Haha. Has anybody ever had this many broodies in the winter???
