I have a broody silkie, AGAIN! She went broody for weeks back in March, got her 6 fertile eggs, within a few days 4 of the 6 hatched. She was a great mom! Now chicks are 14 weeks old and she is broody again. Layed eggs for 2 weeks and now has been broody again for 2 weeks. So, do I just let her continue to be broody ( I can NOT get more chicks!! ) and hope she snaps out of it? Or do I rehome her to someone who wants a broody hen? Maybe this answer is a no-brainer to some, but I do love all my girls Here's silkie with one of her babies tucked under her.
