Oh no! I am soooo crushed!!!! We did not notice this morning that our broody silkie could not get back in her broody box. She was off her eggs from about 10:15 or so to 12:35-ish. Will the chicks be dead??? They are on day 17. It is sunny here, warmish in the coop, a bit chilly with wind outside. The eggs are in a perfect nest in a pet carrier turned to broody box inside the enclosed coop (which had its door open). Oh gosh, I am so worried. My girls are distraught...my reaction did not help. Let me know if anyone has insight or experience...comfort? happy endings? THANKS SO MUCH!
