I just lost my best broody silkie to a peregrine falcon Dec 22nd. My one legbar hen got hit in the head when it attacked my silkie. I have her in the house trying to save her. My silkie is now buried in the yard. The falcon hit when the dogs went inside, it was raining out .all my chickens are on lockdown. I was just Certified by the state 2 weeks prior for AI and NPIP too.
I Will be looking for 2 super broody silkies come spring to hatch eggs for me. I don't know if my rooster even saw the hawk as he is young
So sorry to hear that you had an attack as well. There are some great silkie folks at the show each spring, so if you don't find one before then... How is the legbar doing? Now that you are NPIP I can't give you any birds, but can you have eggs (or do those have to come from an NPIP as well?)?
I am not sure on eggs. The woman tokd me if I get any hens that aren't npip I lose my status and just have to start over.
I need a super broody silkie who is a great chick raiser to, buffy did an amazing job with her chicks .

Only if the box says fertile. Certain trader Joe's and whole foods carry them. I found these in stop & shops organic section.
Wondering if anyone has tried hatching those??
