I got a silky hen specifically for sitting on eggs, but have no actual experience with it. I've heard they nest on the ground. She and her rooster share a little coop, in which she lays her eggs in a little laying box, just like the rest of my chickens. I'm wondering what it looks like when a hen goes broody. Does she go broody on eggs in the nesting box? Do I have to leave some in there for her to decide to sit on? Would a silky be more comfortable nesting on the ground? How should I best accommodate her? I have a small fenced-in wooded area with lots of cover in which she and the roo reside. I know I'd have to protect the chicks when they're small, but I'm wondering what to do before all that to get things started.
