    My little silkie has gone broody for the 2nd time. Her last chicks are 10 weeks old. Is this okay? She is healthy and perky and I would like to put some eggs under her.

    Spot, I just put three EE eggs under her and of course the one egg she was sitting on. She seems to be the hen out of all of them that brooding stresses the least.
