It took 3 years but I have my first broody. A 1.5 year old Australorp. The other day she was in the nest box a little too late in the day compared to normal and all flattened out like a pancake. I collected the eggs and moved the golf ball to the other nest box. As the other chickens were roosting she had moved to the other nest box with the 2 golf balls. I put picked her up and put her on the roost and the next morning she was out in the run when I checked in on her. SO maybe no broody I give my wife the heads up because I was going to be out of town for a few days. She calls me and tell me that the Australorp is in the nest box again trying to hatch a golf ball. I have a slight problem. My coop will be a max capacity this winter when I bring my 6 pullets in with my 9 hens. If try to hatch 3-4 eggs It could get crowded. 8X8 coop / 4 ft = 16 chickens. My eggs are not fertile, but I can get some. Good news my A-frame pullet coop will be free for my broody and chicks in a month. Just when I have my chicken setup working perfectly they throw me a curve ball. Time to read up on broody hens and find some fertile eggs.
