We have a Silkie hen who was broody and sat on her clutch of eggs for 18 days. Unfortunately the clutch was attacked by a rat (the insides of the eggs were eaten out, and the shells remained) and only 4 eggs remained. We moved her to a smaller, safer coop in a bid to save the rest of her eggs. But she rejected them and wouldn't sit back on them. Looks like she (and another hen) are going broody again. What should we do? Leave them, so as not to unsettle them, and hope the rats don't return? Or move them, earlier on, i the hope that they won't unsettle? Any advice would be appreciated.
