I realize silkies can't really fly so how high off the ground should their nesting boxes be?
I would keep it as close to the ground as possible. I have some silkies and when they lay I may just use a five gallon bucket on the ground for a nesting box
Is the bucket lying on its side? I've seen nest boxes made from buckets that had been cut down and mounted to the wall. Do you leave yours as is? Don't have any silkie hens yet but I'm hoping to get some so I'm glad to see this question come up!
Quote:that what we did with Sweetie She will only lay in the bucket on the ground Will not use the one sitting on bricks
Went to get the eggs today and she gave me that broody sound so I got the 4 eggs I was holding hoping she would go broody soon She is such a good mamma
