Will someone please explain the chickeny logic behind the &^$&!!! silkies going broody only on the below freezing weeks? Silkie #1 decided to go broody back in November when it was 11 degrees outside. She wouldn't give up so I finally gave her a few eggs and let her have at it. Silkie #2 has apparently decided that today is the day for her to get in on it. It's hovering in the high 20s at the moment and is supposed to get colder all week. We have just completed three weeks of temperatures in the 40s and 50s- altogether pleasant winter weather. Does Silkie #2 go broody when it's decent out? Nooooooooo... she waits for the worst possible time. What is going through their crazed little silkie brains? Can they not just wait for spring when things are more temperate? Enough already!
