Why did 3 of my chickens, 2 silikies and one RIR go broody, they have a pile of eggs, my silkies go to the back of the box, shich makes room for another chicken to lay in front of them, then the silkie steals the egg so to speak. The 3 of them are on 17 eggs, only 3 of which are silkies. I am at wits end, this is in 5 days. I would like to have eggs to eat, I can't bild new boxes, it took forever to get these built and ones they will actually use. Will the rest of them go broody, will I get any eggs? Will any of these hatch? I have 3 assorted roosters and23 assorted hens.
