    Hey guys I have a hen here that decided to go broody in November ( don't know why) she's been broody for about 3 days now. She is a silkie easteregger cross and she went broody on 2 eggs ( barred rock) and her own green egg. I am not the breaking broody type of person and I am always encourageing chicks . But my problem is if she hatches the eggs here in Canada they might freeze to death. What should I do??

    If you are not planning on hatching chicks you should break her, or she will loose weight and be in poor shape with cold weather coming.
