Introducing new hens to a broody........

Recommended Posts

Just back from hols to find our little bantam Sherbert is broody.

We were planning on a couple of new additions & wondered if anyone knows if its a bad idea to introduce new hens to a flock where there is a broody?


Sherbert is a madam - a real bully - maybe being broody will make her even more bad tempered, or maybe she will be so preoccupied with being broody she won't notice the new ones?


What do you think?
