    We have had a broody silkie for a while now and we havent really kept track of her, we have just been way too busy, But anyway we have no idea how long she has been sitting on this one egg and I am not sure if it is dead or not, I candled it today and this is what it looks like, what do you think? do you think I should leave it under her or take it and discard of it, is it dead or do you think it's still living. any answers help! thanks for looking!

    That could be a good egg , I really dont know but if it dosnt stink and its not weeping and she is willing to sit give it another week and then candle again if it isnt hatched .
