Yesterday I set a broody hen on Buckeye eggs, in 21 days I hope to have chicks for a customer. To make sure the hen was solidly broody I set her on two "trial" eggs on Saturday. She stayed on the eggs in her trance-like state, feathers spread out like a blanket. With a dozen fresh eggs available, I moved her off the trial nest and set her on the dozen eggs in the corner of the coop. With all but the hen and winter chicks overnighting in the coop for company, she should have a good chance of hatching her clutch.
