I plan to write a series of three posts: one on the beginning of the process, one on the end, and one about how the babies are doing. In this first post, I’ll talk about the signs of a broody hen and steps to take if you want her to hatch some chicks.
It’s that time of year. Our poor girls were walking around this week with their little wings held out, trying to take in any cool breeze they could. Thankfully, watermelon helped, but it got me to thinking about how important it is to keep an eye on your backyard flock’s health during the hot summer months.
