My 29 week old white silkie has decided to be broody. She spent all day on the nest, despite my attempts to foil her. Really? It was 18 degrees last night and the low tonight is 20. Daytime highs have been in the high 30s low 40s. Why oh why does she want to raise chicks right now? The greater irony is that she was broody on a plastic easter egg. She didn't even lay an egg today to sit on. Little freeloader!
