Blondie when she was broody.

She was very polite and well mannered :thumbs:

Re: Blondie when she was broody.

That was before they were put in...I wanted Nathan to move her at night then give her a  few days to un-brood before the roo went in.  I am reliably informed they are in there now!  I just got it ready on Sunday before I left. =D

Re: Blondie when she was broody.

Such a nice set up! Hopefully blonde is unbroody enough to lay some eggs! Maybe then she could go broody again and raise babies?

Re: Blondie when she was broody.

I notice those broody raised babies are not as friendly (yet), so along with it being so late I want one batch all hatched together, no mess ups, as we had a hatch date range of 5 weeks + with the first lot-I did put 2 lots of eggs in!!!!  Having the broodies incubating was stressful as eggs would blow up or get holes pecked in them with over rough handling by some of them..... and the range in hatching dates was crazy....we never took the chanty eggs out that they laid in the pats few weeks so I imagine we'll either have chicks or a  nasty smell in their coop when I go and check it..... :sick:

She has that defensive look, but she was very polite, just fluffed up a bit more when you went near, little purring noises, nothing like the chanties and Lav Ameraucanas that cry and make the weirded noises, and we have had the odd peck from them!

Re: Blondie when she was broody.

I think one of my EO hens is broody. She has been sitting on the eggs longer and longer over the past week. Yesterday she would not get off. And she screeched like a banshee when I tried to reach under her. The two other hens (marans) I have had go broody (twice!) were so polite, I could reach under them, move them, etc and never any aggression.

No more babies allowed so we will need to figure something out...

Re: Blondie when she was broody.

Moving them to a new coops seems to help.  Blondie is not broody any more, now she is greedier than ever! :thumbs:  I just spend the last 2 hours picking strawberries, blackcurrants (about 12), raspberries and redcurrants and have all the overripes to the birds and was she ever begging for them!

Re: Blondie when she was broody.

Thanks, she is a lot bigger than most of my chanties so could cover more eggs I guess.
