My Silkie Hen is laying eggs (no clue how old she is) The Rooster has a ERRR A ERRRR A ERRRRRRRR kind of crow (does this mean he is young?) his last errrr he runs out of steams...kind of funny sounding actually. Here is a pic of her nest she made, right next to the water container. She sits on the nest, but not always...she turns her eggs. If she is sitting on the nest and I reach near her to get the water dish, she pecks hard at me. So...I have never done this before...does this mean she is broody...I know silkies tend to. My two daughters are excited thinking they are going to get chicks...but I don't know...I don't know what to tell them. Other than...wait and see. How long should I wait...and what point to I know the eggs are not fertile and should toss?
