my silkie has been broody for a few weeks and i just decided to get some hatching eggs to put under her. if i order them they will be here sometime next week. will she still be broody? she is pretty persistent shes been broody for about 3 weeks... and i have been taking the other chickens' eggs out from under her everyday(the other chickens kick her out to lay them) so half the time she has been sitting on nothing but never leaves the nesting box (except shortly for food/water). i put a few eggs under her so maybe that would help her stay broody?(the eggs are unfertile and i marked them to know which ones they were). I have no roosters which is why im ordering eggs online. I was planning on sectioning off an area in the run for her to hatch and raise her chicks so she is away from all the other chickens(obviously i would put a nesting box in the area). Anyway so i was wondering that because she has been broody so long when i put the eggs under her next week will she sit on them the whole 3 weeks? also any tips or if theres anything wrong with my idea of her raising the chicks.
