Broody silkie?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My silkie has been broody for weeks. Ive been trying to break her hut shes on a mission. I'm debating getting some fertile eggs for her to sit on or if I ahould just get baby chicks for her. If I get eggs for her will she know how long to sit on them since they are new or how will that work?

Since she has been brooding for weeks giving her new chicks is the better option. After being broody for that length of time she may give up before the eggs hatch. Many hens will just keep on brooding, but this is not healthy for the hen.
