I tried all spring to encourage my silkie to go broody while my duck was laying to hatch ducklings. But to no avail she never would, now just after moulting and laying about a doz. eggs total (I took most of them) she decided to go broody in the middle of the summer in 104 degree weather with 2 of her own eggs! Will she be ok or should I try and break her? She is in a small coop that she shares with some younger hens who aren't laying yet and a sizzle roo. I haven't even had time to give her a proper nesting box so she is sitting on the ground of the coop! I hadn't messed with getting her a nesting box since she had gone all summer without laying and I had just built the new pen for them. . On top of that my lakenvelder hen has also decided to go broody and take the favorite nesting box in the big coop! I have some eggs in the bator I could give her but I would need to move her and I am thinking I should move my silkie also?? I don't know these are my first broody's and I am not sure what to do with them! I am afraid of moving them since they might stop. any suggestions!?
