I admit defeat! I gave up! Presently, I have 4 broody Silkies! These 2 have been at it for 3 weeks. They won't quit, relentless! I finally gave in. They are now snuggled in their new nest in the attached garage. Each on has 5 or 6 eggs. I have 2 more, still outside in the Silkie coop. I will take pictures of them tomorrow. These 2 are due Jan 3rd, I believe.
