So, I've got this showgirl that just started laying a couple weeks ago. There's a couple of silkies in there that may or may not be laying. The showgirl gathered up a pile of eggs, since I didn't bother to take them out for a few days and was sitting on them. I put the food in and she got off them. Then I didn't see her on them again until later on that night. She slept on them. Next day she was off and on them. It's been going on maybe 3 days. None of them are developing because she hasn't made up her mind on what she wants to do. Is this normal for a recent layer? I don't need the eggs for anything right now, so I don't mind leaving them in with her, but it is becoming quite the pile. Lol. Or should I take them all out and just make her wait a bit until she really goes broody. She does follow me around and keep an eye on me if I'm messing with them. This is just for my education. I haven't let a broody hatch eggs before since my big girls I have now don't go broody and these other girls that will go broody are young.
