    Hi, we're new here but found you while searching for info on raising chicks. Looks like lots of fun. My son has two beautiful hens one of which is very broody. He's pleading with me to get some eggs to hatch whilst she's in the mood to do the hard work. I can find lots of stuff on caring for & feeding chicks hatched in an incubator but very little on doing in the way nature intended. Any tips? Thanx in anticipation......

    Hi Ceebee, Red is your expert on this! I'm sure next time she's on the forum she can give you a detailed answer. Milly went broody last year and they got her some eggs which she (Milly, not Red!) hatched and raised as her own. We had great fun watching on the cam! If you go to the home page and click on 'tips' there is a section there on broody hens which might help.

    Good luck with it, and welcome to hencam and the forum!!

    Hello, CeeBee; I know absolutely nothing about chickens, but have a hen & a cockerel. I just left mine to it, and she hatched 2 lots of 2 lovely chicks who were perfectly fine, left to their own devices. Nature's a wonderful thing! I would just pop the eggs underneath and leave her to it...but then I'm lazy...

    Hey CeeBee,

    CC is right - if your broody is full-on broody, then just put the eggs under her, make sure she has somewhere quiet and dark and protected from the other hens, has food and water, and hopefully she'll do the rest.

    It really is a LOT easier than with an incubator - broodies are amazing! :)

    I'm sure Scarlet will have more info when she sees this too.

    Good luck and tell us how you get on!


    broodies are best!

    Keeper of the hens

    Oh sheesh, you are SO lucky having a broody to hatch your eggs :D

    Having a broody is SO much easier than using an incubator! All you have to do is seperate her from the other hens (you can try leaving them together if you want, but this can result in the other hens stepping on the fertile eggs (Tilly stepped on one of ours :-\ ), or one of the other hens eating the fertile eggs) Also if newly hatched chicks are in the same coop as other adult chickens, you need to be careful - they can either accidentally or purposefully trample chicks to death.

    If you're going to seperate the broody, put her in a small fox-proof run where she has a nice sheltered nest, but also enough room to get off the nest to eat, drink, poop and dust bathe.

    Feed the broody hen her normal food until day 18, then switch to chick crumbs so that when they chicks hatch they won't choke on the pellets / corn - also, if you are feeding the chicks medicated chick food, don't worry it's perfectly safe for the adult hen to eat! You might want to put marbles in the water bowl, too, for when the chicks hatch so they don't drown themself, although this rarely happens because the broody will look after them :)

    Try not disturb the broody from Day 18 until Day 21 or until you see the chicks, for the last three days it's important mum stays on the nest as long as possible!

    This is so exciting - how many eggs are you getting, and which breed?? :bigsmile:

    Those piano owners are dangerous - you need a dog for protection. A nice cute little sweet cuddly puppy, er I mean, something big and vicious with huge teeth and growls and barks.

    My brother 'found' a kitten once, wandering along the street all on its own. Not really, he got it from his mother in law and just lied to my mom so's we'd have it!!

    Yes, we're all sodden here. Onion hangs around with the rabbits and rushes over if anyone opens the back door. If nobody's talking to him and he hears talking indoors or over the school, he starts crowing! He does pop in the ark now and then to see how Livia's doing, and when she comes out to eat/drink he rushes round after her like a bridesmaid on acid...

    AN ACCOUNTANT: Adds up your money in and money out, presents it to the taxman on your tax return for you ( without crying, snivelling or rocking) adds it all up ( correctly), tells you what you owe the Inland Robbinue and then gets paid for doing it. In my case, tells me not to panic and to pull myself together when I gibber because the b....lighters have written to me in what seems to be another language, drinks my tea, (is it me?) and drinks my beer.
    AN ACCOUNTANT ALSO: Has nothing to do with broody hens but has been known to take a few eggies home with him.

    No, I said the Inland Robbinue were blighters, not accountants. My accountant is truly wonderful. I admire people who can look at sums and not be sick...

    Keeper of the hens

    My cousins get a fiver a week and the oldest one is ten...you're around thirteen so you should be getting around seven or eight quid, me thinks, but why not just round it up to a good old tenner? ;)

    Your ma is evidently a Very Good Accountant. Just tell her that you are NOT part of the Inland Revenue and as such she shouldn't be keeping money from you.

    Now, as a mother, I have to stick up for your mom. Does she buy you clothes, give you money for make up, pay for you to go the pictures, all that sort of thing? I told both of mine they could either fund their hobbies etc themselves from £5 a week or I'd pay and no pocket money. They took the latter and it cost me a bomb!
