Well, it's finally happened! I thought she was just laying another egg, but hours went by and she was still out there. Even the next morning I got up, she was still out there. And I got back from school, 6:38 (bus also) AM to 4:00PM, and she was still out there. So, she is finally broody! There are about 6-8 eggs out in her nesting spot. I was told to just let them build up, making her more likely to sit. Does she need food and water right beside her? I put out a small container of water for her to drink out of which is right by here, and there is a little bit of food. But, since her nesting spot is close to one of the feeding spots, there is a big bowl of water and feed about 3 feet away from her. Do you think she will get up and use that? Is there need for the food and water RIGHT beside her? Answer: Sometimes other chickens will get near her, and just get some hay off her (Silkies = really friendly and nice chickens, they are like mothers ) - But some chickens were getting near her, and she made this noise I have NEVER heard before. Should I keep the chickens away? Answer: Is it bad having about 6-7 eggs on her one nesting spot? Her laying on all of them, is that normal? Answer: Some eggs in her nest are about a week or two old. Will these eggs have a possibility that they will still hatch? Answer: Whenever I get near her, or stick my hand near her - Her feathers stand up on her neck JUST A LITTLE BIT, and she only pecked me once. I thought they were suppose to stand up high and act really protective. Just making sure she IS broody, and not having something wrong with her instead. Answer: If there are any questions you'd like to ask me, PLEASE do so.
