    Hi i belive my silkie went broody yesterday. She has never sat before. If i move her to a cage bye herself will she get up and abandon the eggs or not. I cant leave her where shes at cause theres roosters and other hens there [​IMG] and if you have any advice for me that would be awesome !! k thanks

    If you put her in the cage I doubt she'll get up if she's really a devoted broody, but some just do a little 2 day tricked ya thing. Are you gonna give her hatching eggs? Keep us updated.
