Broody Picks a New Home

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Wednesday October 07, 2009   -   By Brian

Our second flock of layers has a broody chicken.  She's actually gone broody two times this year.  Although breaking them of broodiness is not that hard it is still a change to all concerned.  You need to isolate them and make sure they...

Broody is broody again
