Cochin Broodies

I made the decision a while ago, to leave the eggs in the nest boxes in the Cochin coop, in hopes a girl or two would go broody. It is a nice, natural, low-input way to hatch chicks out. This isn't quite what I had in mind. Out of abut 8 hens, 6 are broody....

I am working on getting them spread out a bit better, and pulled all but one rooster. Hopefully in the next day or two they will all go broody and I can hatch a whole batch of chicks out easily. Time will tell!
