    I have a silkie that has been broody for two weeks now. All along I thought she was egg-bound and trying to treat her for that!! ugghhh, so now I have more researching to do on BROODY vs EGG-BOUND! So do you think it is a good idea to move Silkie to her own nesting spot/box and add some newborn chicks or fertile eggs or should I just try to break her broodiness? ANY and all suggestions would be appreciated. Silkie and I thank you [​IMG]

    I visited a friend the other day and she had bought 5 chicks from TSC and had given them to their two Broody silkie hens.
