So, after trying to stop a chicken from going broody several times throughout last year, now I want her to go broody and she won’t!
Late last year we got some new chickens – 4 brahma pullets and a rooster to match. We also acquired 3 unwanted ISA brown layers from a friend. So with the rooster making all the eggs fertile (yes, I’ve actually witnessed that he’s “doing the job”!), we’d now like to raise a batch of chicks. But nobody wants to sit on the eggs.
Isn’t it always the way?
If you have any tips on how to encourage a hen to go broody, please post them below! Thanks!
Update: Here’s a summary of the tips I found for making a hen go broody.
