    Lucky is not leaving her nest(now that she is home!) Is there anyway to tell if there is an egg in her belly? She is squating and shows all the signs but no egg yet.

    If she's a silkie.. forever! (just kidding)

    Try doing a search on BYC for how to break a broody. There are lots of threads with far more info than I can provide. [​IMG]

    Good luck!
