Duffee my white silkie who has been brooding for a while just stopped.But now when I want her to brood she doesn't. I work with kids and one of my young friends is doing a project on the life cycle of an egg. He is hatching some in a bator and wanted to do some naturally.Well because Duffee was sitting and I could not break her of that I offered her services. I placed 4 eggs under her last night when I tucked the girls in and today she is out running around in her pen. I have another silkie who is often broody but Lillee is also out playing in the pen. Any help or advice will be welcomed.
