    My hen went broody yesterday she has 8 eggs under her. I also sent off 5 eggs to a friend of mine to hatch also was started yesterday. I sent my eggs off before I knew my hen went broody. So we will see what hatch rate we get I am hoping a good rate. Will keep this updated countdown to 21 days Iv counted the 24th this is only the secound time Iv hatched eggs. lastime my hen set on 4 eggs and out of the 4 3 hatched. so cant wait for the turn out this time. My aunt has 2 silkies and they lay like crazy but have not began to set for her. She told me your hen has set twice for you now and my hens havent at all. Guess im just lucky! My Hen loves eggs a sight of an egg and she wants to sit on it she even sits on fake eggs..LOL
