I have a broody silkie who despite my best efforts is determined to remain broody. I was wondering about introducing a chick for her but not sure if this is a good idea? Can anyone tell me if they have done this before and what the outcome was. Also, if I was to give her a chick....do they just 'get on with it' or is there some imput needed from me to care for it? Chickens have turned out to be more complex than quantum mechanics!
