this september i am getting some silkies and just want to know a lot of information on them first of all and most importantly do they go broody quite often? i heard that sometimes the roosters will sometimes go broody will they really? Just for the record i would not really care if they layed a lot of eggs my other chickens already lay enough for me but my incubator can't incubate fast enough to keep up with all of my friends that want all sorts of chickens just like mine and the best thing about using silkie versus incubator is that even if the hatch is a flop with the silkies they are still so cute. if it is cold outside i am probaly going to bring the inside the house. so just wondering if they lay a lot or if they go broody alot either will be fine plus do silkies that are straigh trun have a tendency to hatch out more boys or girls because unfortuantley i can not afford the sexed kinds i have to get straight run so i was just wondering Thanks in advance for every ones advice and answers!
