We Have A Broody Hen

We appear to have a hen go broody.  The last couple of days the same hen is in the same nesting box, refusing to leave.  Time to do some research about broody hens and chicks hatching.

There is no telling what the chicks will be like, I have a Rhoad Island Red Rooster and one that is reported to be a Black Java, but I’m not sure how much “Black Java” it is.  I also have a variety of hens including White Leghorn, ISA Brown, Barred Rock, Black Australorp, Rhoad Island Red, plus a couple others of uncertain breed.  Therefore it’s hard to tell what will come out of the eggs, if they even hatch.
