I have only ever had a silkie go broody until now. I went out last night to find my biggest standard cochin hen sitting on an egg. I left her alone, and this morning she was still sitting on her 1 egg. By this afernoon she now has 2 eggs, one was donated by one of her banty pen mates. But MAN is she scary. She makes more noise than a stuck pig if you get too close to her, and she is HUGE. I think that I will just let her be and see what happens. I never thought that I would be afraid of a chicken!
