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
sitting on the floor in front of Patty is Goldie

They are something else

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.

  1. They look so cute . Hope you hear so peeps soon.

  2. Good luck! I hope you hear something. We get eggs all day long but those hens just get up and leave after a day.

  3. This is one of the most exciting things about having chickens, a broody hen!! Hope that you hear the pips soon!! Love watching the mama with her newly hatched chicks, it is an awesome experience!!!

  4. I envy you. I want some silkies so badly but I don't think it will happen this year.
