Murphy's law strikes. My silkie has been sitting in the same spot on no eggs for four days now. Until recently she laid eggs in the nesting box right along with the others then 2wks ago started leaving them on the floor of the coop. Good or bad I have been collecting them. The only roo I have is rir so I never thought of hatching any of her eggs. Now for the last 4 days no eggs but she continues to sit. Growls at me when I come in the coop, and when I moved her to check that she was o'kay (not just sitting there because she was sick or injured) she pecked the daylights out of me and flapped her wings and tried to claw me. This is the same bird that will jump onto my lap for a spaghetti noodle. So today I took 3 bo x rir eggs warm from the nest and threw them under her. She pecked me in the process. Anyone want to speculate on what the outcome will be? btw- I just spent 2 wks building a bator and was planning on trying to hatch eggs between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Is this supposed to be devine proof not to mess with Mother Nature?
