i have a silkie (1 year old-ish) who's been a broody foster mom to three of my chicks for a month and some now. This makes my oldest chick about 10 weeks and the youngest about 7 or 8 weeks. I've noticed lately when I go to pick up the silkie she takes "The Stance" - the submissive mating stance (i think?) - wings low, squatting. These guys are free ranging in my yard and haven't really needed a nest box, but I'm beginning to wonder if I'm going to have to look around the yard for eggs (BIG iris beds and stuff...really lots to look under). I've put a covered box with wood shavings and a couple of golf balls in the coop but really - what can i expect here? When do the foster broodies start laying again? Thanks!
