i just put 3 golfballs in my silkie's nest. wil this make her go broody?
no. it'll give her an idea of where to lay eggs. as a general rule, chickens want to lay eggs where other eggs are for a good clutch.
hormones control broodiness.
However.......she may decide that she needs to brood those "eggs". I have talked several of my hens into setting by leaving a few eggs in their nest. No guarantees, but silkies have a strong brood instinct. I would save eggs in anticipation of the event.
sounds great to me.
If you want her to go broody, you have to use the flouresent orange, or green ones.
are you being sarcastic?
anyone else have any luck with this? input appreciated.
I apologize. Color doesn't matter. The hen decides when she is going to be broody. No hard feelings?
Quote:none at all
i found it a bit outlandish but i bought it
anyways, so the golfballs wont help?
i want some chicks, so i want her to go broody!
I have 30 pounds of golf balls my stepmom gave me..lol!!
My dad goes for walks near the golfcourse
If they werent so expensive to ship, I'd sell em here..As it is..I'm thinking of selling them to the local pawn shop
The golf balls will convince them that it's OK to lay eggs there, but only her hormones will dictate when she goes broody. My Wyandottes go broody when I need as many eggs as I can get to sell. Very inconvenient.
