The broody madness! This is just getting ridiculous. All of my laying-age silkies/silkie-x hens are either on eggs, with chicks, just finished with their chicks or recently broken of their broodiness. We're talking 13 hens people! Now the non-silkies are getting involved. The BCM started last week. Now I find for the second morning in a row that my head hen BA is in the nest box with the other broodies, with a naked chest, doing that maternal buk-buk thing. I've had this hen for 4 years now, she was already laying-age when I got her. She has never shown any interest in chicks. Enough is enough. Whomever is sending the broody vibes my direction, please stop!
