    well if that's the case it must be the age of mine. Don't mind really. I just hope she'll go broody.

    mine do too until they go broody. I do have one that lays for about 7 days then goes on a little break for a week or two then starts up again.

    stick about 3-4 eggs in the nest and she will probably just go sit them. LOL when you know she is serious take those out and put the ones you want to hatch under her.

    My worst specimen of a silky lays a regular size large egg. She is big for a silkie but not that big. Her butt hangs down.

    how much winter do you get ? totally up to you. she shouldnt stay with the others when she sits because they will keep adding eggs and mess the hatch up.
