In the Brooder
- Mar 14, 2012
I hope this is the appropriate place to ask this question. I have a Silkie hen that is a little over a year old. She has set in her nesting box ALL DAY. She is in a pen with a few more hens, and a rooster. We just put the other hens in a few weeks ago, but she has been with the rooster for a long time. I just knew when I finally went out to check on her that she would be setting on an egg, but to my SURPRISE she was setting on NOTHING!!! I picked her up, loved on her and put her in the pen. She ate, drank, scratched around for a short time, stretched her wings then went back to her nesting box. I have had these chickens since babies and she has never done this. I am not very knowledgable on this subject so ANY ADVICE will be greatly appreciated!!!!!
