We are in the midst of our first blizzard fo the season and I have a black silkie that has decided to get broody. Should I discourage her or let her sit on the eggs? It isn't exactly warm in the hen house. I now have all of the chickens - 2 hen black silkies, 2 black silkie roosters and 9 laying hens in the same 11x8' hen house. Any suggestions on if I need to separate them? In case I sound ignorent, this is my forst post. Hi all!
