    yup, our little black silkie Juliet has stolen two standard brown eggs in the plastic dog house we keep for them,some of the hens lay in there. well she cought the fever and is setting them! [​IMG], I only know cause when I went to move her incase she was hurt, she did the broody growl and pecked me [​IMG], heres to hoping she has two new little babies of her own in three weeks!.

    seems it was a false alarm, least for now, she was just laying one of her own., only a matter of time

    She wants to be a mommy !!!!!

    My silkie also is broody - sitting on golf ball now - she's funny when I take her off for her once a day poop- she fluffs and actually pecked me today- she will get to sit on real eggs friday- I can't wait- the only issue am having when I take her out the other hens are not nice - hopefully they will be nice when chickies are around
