    First egg was layed by one of my silkie hens and this morning I went to check to see if there were anymore eggs layed and found that there were two more eggs layed by my silkie hen that layed her first egg. My question is when will she sit on them as I really want her to have chicks. I have 3 silkie hens and 1 silkie roo

    It may take a bit if she just started laying....I also have 3 hatchery silkies that have never gone broody..but my silkie girl from a breeder has been successful at hatching this spring but she is a year old.
