    My silkie brooded and hatched two chicks. They are juveniles now. Bigger than mama. But the silkie just started laying again. I've gotten maybe seven eggs from her and now she's broody again! Is this normal for silkies? She's made a nest under our wood pile and has one teeny tiny egg under her. She's been there for four days now.
    PS. Will she lay more than just the one egg?

    Normal. I have 2 cochins that do the same thing. Pigie has babies now. When she starts laying I will get 10-12 eggs, then she will go broody again.
