FAQ’s About Chickens
This is Rose, she’s the only hen of the black Silkies that isn’t broody right now. She was laying that egg while I photographed her this morning. For a change, she had first pic of any nest she wanted, all the others were on their own mission…
The rest of the ladies are busy sitting on NOTHING. Regardless, they’ll stay put for the next three weeks as if they had fertile eggs under them… just because that’s what Silkies do! They’re dedicated to mothering no matter what, even if it’s just pretend.
Growing fast, and feathering nicely, well… except that lovely charmer in the back. She’s just a late bloomer right? Maybe.
