I am currently sitting out in my chicken coop in a conundrum. My almost 5 year old BO (who is my favorite) is currently sitting in the nesting box laying an egg. Which doesn't happen very often, so it is worth it's weight it gold. I have a broody silkie right now. (2, actually. ) I am sorely tempted to let the silkie hatch her egg. Is that a stupid idea considering it is the middle of November? It is possible to move the broody into the basement now or when the eggs hatch if need be. Or are the odds just too great to try?
