so I 3 silkie hens and one roo. a couple of the hens are starting to go broody, I have also seen the rooster doing its thing with a couple of the hens. I would love to let the hens lay on their eggs and raise their chicks on their own without any help from me. any one have any experience with this? Are there any steps that maybe I should intervene in? I would really like to just let the momma do it all on her own as I think that would be really cool to watch, but I'm also okay with stepping in if needed.
