I lurk around a lot on here, but I'm gonna step up to the plate and just ask. I have two broodie silkies right now and would like to buy some fertile eggs and give a go at my girls hatching them. I plan on making a little broody den inside my run but I'm unsure how large it needs to be. My run is 12' x 16' (converted horse stall) and the coop is 2' elevated and approx 3'x4'. I was thinking a 3' x 3' fenced off area with a nesting box would probably be adequate since the broodiy(ies) does nothing but sulk in the box and the real room would be for the baby chicks. Any suggestions? Oh! Also, I was wondering if it was okay to have 2 broodies sitting and hatching at the same time (in which case I'd probably make a larger broody area). Silkies are MAD popular in my area and since have two broody girls I figured it'd be nice to have them all on the same schedule with hatching. Thank you in advance! p.s. one more.. Favorite sites for ordering pure fertile eggs? I'm annoyed with my local craigslist posts. Seems no one is able to separate their roos and hens at the right times and only offer "mystery eggs"
