    Is this an ok predicament being so late in the season? This. Is a first for us, we knew they could go broody, but I didn't think it would happen so quickly. We collect eggs everyday and she has 2 under her so I know they are from this afternoon. We don't mind having new chicks but we are usually the ones who do the hatching. Should we let her continue or stop her? Also we are going to be moving the silkies into a bigger coop on Friday. Is it okay to move her and her eggs will she jump ship if we bother her? Thanks for any info. I did read some of the older posts but I could not find my answers. TIA
