Is my chicken broody?
I have recently been given a rooster who needed a good home and since built him a really nice pen/penthouse. I also got him a girlfriend. She has been laying an egg a day and I thought it would be nice to let her have babies. (peeps? I've been reading other posts to see if this has already been answered, and have learnt some new terms) I let them out into my garden and she doesn't seem to mind leaving the eggs but seems a little flustered if my 2 1/2yo gets her egg. (this is one of my daughters favorite activities, but I know she'd love to see babies born more)How can I tell if she is laying fertile eggs and also if she is (broody?)? Her and the rooster are different breeds, does this matter? Thank you
