Well, my very stubborn silkie, Suzy, determinedly sat on nothing for over a month, and I finally gave up and gave her 10 silkie eggs from her hatchmates, and she has been sitting on them for 20 days today. I candled them a couple days ago, and all seemed to be very developed but 2 clears, which I tossed. I am now waiting with baited breath to see if she manages to hatch something, and also keeping a close eye, as she is in the same coop and pen as Roofus the silkie roo, and 3 other silkie hens. I am hoping they like the babies, but am ready to move them and Mom Suzy to a different coop if there is a problem. Wish me luck!
