I think my Silkie cross has gone broody, how can I tell for sure? She came out of the coop fine this morning with the other 2 hens. I came home from work this afternoon and went to check for eggs and I found my little silkie named Honey sitting in the net box. I just thought she was laying an egg so I left her to it and came back about 2 hours later to check on her and she was still sitting. I have shut the girls in for the night now and she is still in the nest box. If she has gone broody please advise the best way to deal with this. These are my 1st chickens and the 1st time I have had to deal with a broody one. I just want the best for her so any help and advice is appreciated.
