I have a black Silkie rooster that just matured and has mated with my RSL hen. I cracked her last 2 eggs and they were fertile! I want to hatch chicks before it gets too cold. I would incubate them but I haven't gotten enough money together for a new incubator. Should I see if she'll go broody? I can bring the chicks inside. All winter if I have to. She's at least 6 months old. She seems like she'll be a good mommy or at least a go broody very easily. I know RSL's don't usually go broody but she really seems like she would. Try and see maybe? Is it too late for her to go broody? Should I just stick with the incubator when I get it? I know some of people who hatch chicks during winter.
