Broody Hen

Recommended Posts


I have 6 hens and 1 of them has started getting broody. (She is the only pure breed among them - a cochin). She keeps sitting on the eggs and caws with irritation when I push her off to take them. I was thinking of getting some fertilised eggs for her to hatch. Can anyone advise me on this - is it a good idea, what do I need to be wary of, will she look after the chicks or do I need to get involved? Also, where can I buy fertilised eggs for her?


Thank you.
