ok so my little tiny silkie went broody AGAIN so I though "why not" this is her 3rd time broody and she will sit for well over 4 weeks. its been a week tomorrow and I want to see if the eggs are developing. They are outside in the coop ( it stays really nice in there due to the heat lamps. )Can I take them out from under her to check. If I even LOOK in her direction she PUFFS up and screams at me... I cant help but laugh at her

LOL, she doesn`t care what kind of eggs they are and would probably brood rocks (river rocks). Don`t let her bluff ya. Go out there at night and candle them eggs. Probably shouldn`t until 7-10 days, then again on day 18 and you`re done. Good luck and have fun.......Pop

I swear she NEVER gets off ! I hold the dish up so she eats... Then do the same with the water... Oh wait! She does leave me a HUGE broody Poo every day so she must get off them some time. She is in a big crate so the standard girls dont bug her.... I'll wait a few more days if I can then candle them. Should I try not to tip or flip them ? Im so nervous... if these hens only new how much we worried..

I love them so

Very observant, LOL Actually she needs to get off and stretch and eat/drink/poo, but that doesn`t mean we should help her. Just let her be and she will take care of all that is neeeded on her part. Fresh feed, water, and seclusion are all she needs from you......Pop
