I have a broody silkie that I have been trying to break!! Not going to happen so I am going to let her hatch some eggs. How many can she sit on? She keeps stealing eggs, golfballs, wooden eggs. What is a good amount of eggs for a silkie to sit on? They are not silkie eggs that she will be hatching so they are a little bigger, I was just wondering what is a good amount for a good hatch?
