    Get them some fertile eggs and hatch out some chicks? [​IMG]

    Do you want them to hatch out eggs?

    If not then the only thing that I've heard that seems to work (no personal experience here) is to put a broody in a wire dog cage with no bedding; only food and water.

    After a few days or a week or so she should snap out of it. However, I know that Silkies are tenacious broodies so I don't know if it would work for them.

    Thanks for your input! I wonder if she would sit on my goose's egg? That would look so funny! [​IMG]
