Ok, I went out of town Labor Day weekend and had a friend watching my chickens while I was gone. When I got home labor Day one of my silkie hens had gone broody and was setting on 2 eggs. Well every time another hen goes into the coop to lay an egg the broody one steals it And....Did I forget to mention the other hens are Minorcas?? They are my egg laying hens. She has had a many as 10 eggs, she can't possibly cover that many eggs so i culled them down to six. Everyday I have to go out and pull out the unmarked egg she stole. I hate to dispose of the eggs she has stolen, How long can she set on them before they are no good to eat?
