    I need help...well of course I do but...I have very little experience with broody hens, especially Silkies. Is it okay to let them sit it out, put eggs under them, or...?

    Put eggs under them for sure. You need more chicks.

    Tomorrow up early again and off to the Little League "World Series. It's a bit of 'Americana' that I can not recommend strongly enough.

    On the opposing side, I vote to break her by putting her in a wire cage. (Unless she's sitting on AM eggs, then it's OK to let her sit.) [​IMG]

    Sure fire way to break a broody is to let her hatch some chicks. Hatch chicks now and they will be laying by springtime. I've currently got 4 broody hens :oops: .....none of them silkies.
