Here's my dilemma. My DH and i are packing up our house to put it on the market to move 400 miles away. And, i have a broody hen. My little silkie hen, Dusty, has decided she is going to hatch sawdust or whatever she can, and i can't seem to break her from it. She was camped out in the nest box, which i removed. So now she has taken up residence in the backside of our converted chicken sleeping hutch. i feel so bad for her and am contemplating putting some fertile eggs under her - perhaps some showgirl eggs, if i can find them. But that would put her at hatching chicks right at the time we are selling and moving. i am dreading having to transport all our earthly belongings, 4 cats, a dozen chickens, and two aquariums full of fish to the other end of the state - so dealing with baby chicks seems like a drop to much. But i do feel so bad for Dusty, so determined, all puffed up, doing a great job of sitting on nothing - that a part of me wants to make her happy. Suggestions - do i throw some fertile eggs under her and just add it all to the excitement of moving - and, if so, does anyone know where to get fertile showgirl hatching eggs? Or, do i break her broody ways, and if so, how? Thanks in advance for any advice anyone might offer.
