How can I trigger brooding if my silki hens aren't auto to it?
Are you leaving eggs in the nest boxes? usually for hens that have a tendency to brood that's all it takes.
@BantamBonzo Welcome to BYC
This is my babies first clutch so we are all learning. Came home from errands to find my brown pheasant looking silki on the nest. When they see me in the afternoon it's scratch time so maybe I accidentaly trained them to treats? Idk
She was grumpy though would go scratch then immediatly run back to thr nest area to see what I was doing. I added two from the incubator setup back to the nest of four and added a couple ping pong balls. I am so releived
Sounds like broodiness is taking over. Keep us updated!!
