I have a Silkie hen. Her name is Jewel. We have been trying to get one of our chickens broody. It feels like forever. We always say "Mum she's broody!" But she is not. Two days ago I noticed her sitting on eggs. She sat on them for a bit after she laid her egg, for maybe an hour. She got off and wouldn't get back on. When she was on the perch getting ready to sleep I grabbed her and put her into a smaller coop away from the others. She sat on them that night and in the morning she sat on them for a bit and then got off for an half an hour break. Then got back on. All through that day she took long breaks. But this morning she was on them and refused to get off. I swapped some eggs around and she still refused to get off the eggs. She is still on them now. She takes breaks to eat and drink. I look at her and she looks bored. She is quiet. Is that normal? Do you think she is properly clucky? I don't want to go telling everyone she is clucky if she is not. Thanks.
