    ...do y'all think it will take my silkie roo to hatch a golf ball [​IMG]

    The past two days, he has been sitting on a golf ball that I put in the nest boxes for my new girls. The first day, I thought it was cute. Now I am starting to wonder about this guy.

    Give him some eggs.

    Kimmie has a silkie roo that hatches her eggs.

    That is one of the oddest things about silkies. Even the roos will go broody.

    That is too funny. I keep telling DH that we need to buy live incubators. Are silkies notoriously broody? I was thinking of picking up a couple to hatch for me in the spring.
