    I have another that has gone broody. [​IMG]

    She sat for almost 2 days so today I took her off the fake bad eggs. Talk about a fight, a pair of welding gloves and 2 sticks later I placed 6 new eggs under her. Each marked with an X on one side an O on the other.

    I will start the count down tomorrow. Lets cross some fingers and say some prayers [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My two silkie hens have not gone broody since they came here. But maybe this spring... who knows. They are cute little things so they get to stay anyways :)
