I am a first time Silkie owner and knew when I chose them that they were very likely to go broody. So here we are 5 weeks after one of them started laying and she has gone broody on me. I have no roosters because I can't have them in the city and I don't plan on buying any fertile eggs for her to hatch. I have one main nesting box for my little flock and a smaller box on the floor of the coop that only my 2 Silkies lay in. I have been moving her if she is hogging the main box and the big girls need to do their business. Sometimes I set her by the food so she can get something to eat and drink. Sometimes I put her in the little box to continue her brooding. I just wanted to get some opinions on whether or not most people try to break their Silkies in this situation or just let them continue sitting on "air eggs." Thx!
