Broody Silkie Hen

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by SundownWaterfowl, Apr 29, 2008.

  1. My silkie hen is broody. I put 4 call duck eggs under her and then she got scared and ran out. She is back in the chicken house now and looking at the eggs. Will she sit on the eggs since she is broody, or do I have to lock her up and have her sit on the eggs.
  2. I just checked on her and she moved the eggs next to my other hen who has been sitting on call eggs for 2 days. Good thing i labeled the eggs before i put them in there. silly chicken
