In the Brooder
11 Years
Sep 13, 2008
I was wondering if they get broody at all, I have 2 of them, one likes to peck the crap out of me and one comes near me when she thinks I have treats, other than that no real interaction. I got them a few months ago for free they are both good layers. Have a amercana rooster with them, One barred rock and two other rir's.
We started with 4 and now have 3 Wyandotte hens. Our White Wyandotte is the only one to have gone broody, which she just did for the very first time last month. She is almost 2 1/2 years old. None of our other Wyandottes have gone broody.

All of ours are very calm and friendly. The White Wyandotte is our lap sitter and loves to help garden.
both are golden laced very pretty, but anti social. Spoiled rotten to the core for sure though.
So I am not sure what to look for as far as broodiness. So Help please:
Yes what kind of signs, I am really more into ducks as they are so much easier. Not sure If I should just leave the eggs with her until she gets enough to set or take them away and incubate them
If she's sticking to the nest whether there are eggs in it or not and flattening out and "growling" when you check for eggs under her, she's more than likely broody.
she pecks the poop at me and she growls for sure, so now what do I do with her? She is in a very large pen about 15 by 25, I want to let her out to free range but I have labs and they just don't mix:he
