  1. Our dear hen ‘Chickpea’ has just gone broody and we would so love for her to sit on some fertile eggs and then raise her own chicks. We have never done this before however! I am wondering how many eggs a bantam Orpington can sit on (6?) and then raise? What sized broody house would be ideal for her? Would an Eglu Go (on ground level not on a stand) be a suitable size and set up? I would have chicken fencing around it for a run.
  2. Hello everyone, this is my first post to the forum! We're having a situation with our last chicken, a Bantam hen. We had more chickens last year but the last of them died to a fox, leaving her. She's always been a bit different, as she sleeps at the top of a tree and has always been somewhat solitary. During the summer, I spent more time feeding the chicken by hand. Holding her, making a fuss, etc! For a long while she was happy. Now, she's acting strange. Over the past few days, she's actively seeks to lay eggs and settle 'behind our sofa'! She makes a beeline straight indoors whenever the doors open, and when we shut her out, she kept pacing the garden and then staying right by the glass doors leading outside. As I write this she's laid two eggs behind the sofa, and she's nested on some newspapers I placed down so that we could collect any poo. Now I need to ask: Should I get a Hen or Rooster as company for her? Will that sort out any issues? Many thanks, Connor
