I am curious about how many times a year will a silkie go broody, or how many clutches will she raise in a year? I know each one is different, but any one know the record? My silkie was a year old in April. She is now sitting on her 3rd clutch of eggs! She is an excellent momma, but I am wondering how long she will keep up this pace. She raises her chicks to about 6 weeks, then starts laying for 2 to 4 weeks, and then I can't believe it -- she is back at it again! When it was so hot, I kept pulling her off the nest and telling her to wait until it was cooler! I guess 80s is cool enough for her.
