Broody silkie?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is an update okay so I have a silkie hen about 11 months and today is her 3rd day she has been in the nest night and day, although she dosnt puff up towards me or do the broody sounds she does puff up towards other hens and does a growl.. Does this mean she's broody? I have fertile Easter egged eggs and I want to seperate her and give her about 3-4, what should I do?

She's broody.  Give her the eggs if you want to hatch them.

there's a clutch of fertile eggs but the thing is they have dirt on them since my hens usually tend to lay there eggs in bushes, will they still hatch?

They should be fine, a little dirt or poo is pretty normal as far as hatching eggs go smile.png
