So One of my three hens has been sitting on the eggs for the past day. Her feathers get ruffled when I go near her, and she makes a funny noise. There have only been two eggs, and I am starting to wonder what she might be doing. Any ideas?
Yep. My Silkie hen has gone broody three times this year. Each time I've broken her. Gosh that girl is determined to sit.Then, the next time she decides to sit, you give her fertile eggs. Breaking her broodiness wont effect her going broody in the future. Every hen I've had that has gone once, tends to go again at least once a year. Good luck
