Three Broody Silkies

Hello thought I would update you as to what is going on in the Silkie Hen House.  The three hens are still very broody and looking a little worse for wear.  They won't let me clean the house or add shavings and have knocked their roosts down. 

It seems that Elvira is now in the left nest, Patty is in the right nest

It has now been 19 days but no piping going on yet.  I hope something will hatch...

Have a great day will let you know it anything happens.
