    Those silkies... Every time I break one being broody, another one is on the nest within a week. Three days ago, I finally stopped the last one after her eggs didn't hatch, and today, I found another one sitting on a nest. I can't let them set, because eggs from my flock never hatch, and it would be dangerous to ship eggs for them this time of year. But still... Do they ever stop?!?!

    If you take the eggs every day or even clear them several times a day it should help. I am struggling to get mine to go broody!! [​IMG]
