    My silkie girl has finally started to lay eggs. Yippii I'm thinking. She layed 2 eggs than went broody. What the [​IMG] Crazy bird. [​IMG]

    Lil Miss Lou Lou hatched these two out and she is still sitting on about 7 eggs that my Sultan hen Sophia snuck in and layed. I'm waiting on her to come off the nest now and feel like I will be crancking my bator back up.

    Nothing like a broody silkie... mine made it 2 months before I have to drag her out of the nest box screaming. Then she's back in there 2 seconds later.

    I'm torn between cold water bath and just sticking a duck egg under her and letting her have her way.

    Congrats of the eggs though... I bet they were the best tasting eggs ever! [​IMG]

    My broodys name is LouLou. Hopefully she is sitting on more than one egg and yes they were good eggs. [​IMG] Go LouLou go.[​IMG]
