My almost 9 month old, February 28th, Silkie just became broody two days ago and I honestly don't know anything about dealing with a broody hen since she is my first chicken ever. My roommates have four hens and one rooster in an adjacent coop/run that connects hers, but is separated by chicken coop wire because some of the hens don't get along well with her. Today I took her infertile egg away from underneath her, and then put her into the run with the others thinking it would snap her out of the broody 'trance' I've read about online. Also I know that the rooster has tried to mate with her before, and as I was leaving for school I saw him doing his dance and trying to get on top of her, but I don't know if he was successful this time because I had to leave. I got back, removed her from their run, put her back in her run, and she went directly back into her little coop, but was a little confused as to where the egg was. Regardless she sat back down, and every time I got close to her she would make noises like she did before that warned me she was broody. If the rooster was successful of mating with her will she produce eggs even in this broody mode? If not, what should I do?
