I have 2 silkies, a male (white)and a female (black). My silkie hen went on a laying spree back in December. Afterwards she sat on one egg. I thought OK she wants to be a mom. So after 23 days (giving it plenty of time) I checked. No egg. So I pulled out the nest to burn and found the egg under straw and cracked. After placing fresh bedding and straw my little rooster went in and made a new nest for her. There is no egg but she is just sitting there as if there is one. Can't keep her off the nest. Should I go to the hatchery and buy a baby chick for her to mother or what? I'm so stumped.
