I've got a perpetual broody silkie. I usually just move her to the boody pen, let her just have some eggs and that's that....buut I've not yet had to deal with her going broody this late. And she is NOT a quitter. Its eiither hatch or die with her. I have no problem giving her some eggs, but the DH isn't so keen on the Basement Broody Brothel any longer. So, I have a covered carport, heat lamps etc. And living in the Pacific Northwest, we don't get freeziing, frigid temps throughout the wiinter. So, I'm thinking it will be fine to hatch and have Mama take care of them for a while, then heat lamp it... whatare ya'lls opinions on the matter?
