Ok. So I'm getting in the car now to guy buy the fertile eggs. Lulu will be sitting on them within the hour. No one has stopped me and I'm not in control of myself so there's no-one to blame but you BYC folk (that's what I'm telling my hubby anyways). Hi everyone Lulu is my cutie-pie silkie and she has been broody for 5 days now. It took a bit of effort but I found a local supplier of fertile eggs and went to buy 6 frizzle pekin bantam and 6 light sussex eggs to put under her tonight. Anyway when I got to the place to pick them up it turned out the guy had accidentally left his eggs at his parent's place. So I have to go back tomorrow. If I get them and place them under her tomorrow evening, will she sit for long enough? It means that she'll be sitting for around 27 days by the time they hatch (and me being the worrywort I am I'm afraid she'll give up if they don't hatch on time). I'd appreciate your expert opinions: Break up her broodiness and try again next time, or trust her silkie headed determination and get her some eggs to hatch anyway? Here is a picture of her first clutch of mixed bantams. She was so proud of herself....she's never even had a boyfriend (I haven't explained the facts of life to her yet).
