My poor silkie has been broody for a little more than a month now - Today she has plucked all of her feathers under her, or at least it looked that way. I'm worried she will kill herself in the cold - She is not going to hatch any eggs, but none the less she is broody. Will she soon stop being broody? She already hatched a batch of eggs I bought for her, but after she had laid for a little she went broody again... I'm really worried for her health! Should I buy her some chicks or something... I have friends who have quail eggs I could buy next Sunday, probably. She is really gentle and could probably hatch them. I'm afraid she will deprive her body of things it needs. Any input? Or am I worrying over nothing?
