she could well be! My silkie mixes are broody at the moment. Make sure she has some mixed grain and water by her as she will be reluctant to leave the nest. Also giving her a nudge each day so that she does eat, drink and poo. Let us know how you get on!! good luck with hatching, very exciting

I have two silkies and they go broody ALL the time!! I block the nesting boxes at night so they get up on the roost with the others. Silkies are known for their constant broodiness.

I think if you leave the eggs there she will sit on them.

Good luck
