I have two Silkies that have gone broody, and nothing I do seems to stop this behavior. So I ordered 4 chicks, and plan on sticking them under the Silkies on the first night they arrive. Has anyone had succes with this? Also, should I move the hens out of the hen house so they can raise the chicks, or should I just put them in the hen house all together? Worst case is I raise them in a brooder and integrate later, but I am going to get rid of those broody hens of mine as they are driving me nuts. Never again with the Silkies.
