I heard Silkies go broody and I think that is what I am dealing with but wanted to run this by you guys. My silkie hen is around 10 months old. I got a incubator for Christmas and just hatched out 3 beautiful silkie chicks. I gathered 10 days worth of eggs which was 8 eggs. Only the 3 oldest eggs hatched, the other 5 were not fertile ( broke open eggs at day 14 they never developed) She kept laying but now that I want to collect more for the incubator she has stopped and I don't know if the last four are fertile or not... I will try them and see but how come so many are not fertile I have one hen and 2 roosters. and now she has gone broody with eggs that are duds.......... what's going on?
