    Hello every one, i have a white silkie hen that is sitting on eggs and they are to hatch next week [​IMG], i have a buff silkie hen that keeps going in the same nest and steels like 3 or so eggs putts them under her and sits on them , should i give her some eggs so she can sit on those and place her in her own nest? or is it ok to just leave her there ? my white silkie dosent seem to mind she just lets her sit next to her. At first i thaught that she was sitting there just to lay but now she dosent get up so that means she went broody.
