All About Broody Hens

Expand Your Flock

There are a couple of different ways you can expand your flock. One way is to use the best broody hens in your flock. For those who don’t want to expand their flocks, you will have to break the hen of her broodiness. If you want to hatch eggs, a broody hen can be your best friend. Keep in mind that not all breeds are created equal. Some are more broody than others. Heritage breeds are more broody than hybrids and often make the best broody hens. Learn the top five picks for broody chicken breeds.
