When we picked up Gracie and her flockmates it was with the hope that one would end up being a broody for us... I knew silkies were known for it, so we got them with fingers crossed. I just didn't expect for it to happen so soon! We got them at the end of October, by mid December she was into a broody mood that just wasn't going to quit! If yours don't seem inclined to it, then find a silkie or silkie mix or two and add them into the flock. They don't eat much! LOL Maybe seeing a broody silkie around will get some of your other hens in the mood!
