I have a couple of broody Silkies, one of which is setting on 6 RR eggs, and the other went broody about a week or so ago--with nothing under her. She's just setting on air! Okay, so I wanted Silkies because they'll go broody at the drop of a hat, but this is ridiculous! I was really hoping to have a broody hen when my Guineas start laying, but obviously these two won't be ready then--maybe one of the other two. Okay, so I finally broke down and put 5 RR eggs under her today so she can help raise the next generation of layers, but is setting on nothing at all common for Silkies? Or any broody hen, for that matter?
