1. Feeling overwhelmed, too much to do.
2. Financial or professional success.
3. Many offspring, often ideas, sometimes children.
4. Good luck in ventures (many chickens in a brood, but “don’t count them before they hatch”!).
To see a fowl with her brood, denotes that, if you are a woman, your cares will be varied and irksome. Many children will be in your care, and some of them will prove wayward and unruly. Brood, to others, denotes accumulation of wealth.
For a mother to dream of seeing a brood of chickens under a hen warns her that despite her care some of her offspring will stray (Artemidorus). Obviously this dream is traceable to maternal anxiety.
