Too stinking cute I can't wait till I can stick eggs under my girls...hopefully they'll all be girls lol
Just haven't figures where I'd get eggs... So when you silkies go broody how long after do you put the eggs under them? What are the tall tale signs that. They are going broody?
When she started sitting, there were 2-3 eggs in the nest from that day.
I used the eggs for her from the following day too. A total of 5.
With my other hens, I just let a few eggs pile up, and with my free rangers, someone will always take over and sit.
I guess the most obvious sign is they stay on the nest all day and night - only getting off to eat.
And when they get off to eat, they usually cluck around and puff up.
Glad you all liked the pictures!
I so love having silkie babies around.
2 more born today. 1 egg left.
