Okay, so I have 1 Silkie roo and 2 silkie hens, one hen has gone broody. We collect eggs every day, so we left the two she was sitting on, hers and the other hens. Then I read one of the post on a forum that said she should be moved so I moved her box into a crate, now today she layed another egg, is it fertile if I took her away from the rooster? I can let the rooster in where she is, her crate is just in the next fenced area, he can get back and forth, but I have it blocked off . I have no idea how that all works, do they need to mate every day to have a fertile egg that day? Should I have left her where she was? I want as many eggs/chicks as they can give me, if she gives one egg most days, will it take days for them to all hatch? Help! THanks so much, appreciate your thoughts and knowledge!
