My silkie lady is now on day 3 sitting on eggs I purchased for her 3 silkies and 3 pekins. Do take her off each day for a quick walk?? Or do I leave her be, I've had to cage her in as she would get off then jump in another of the nesting boxes.

Leave her be!! She'll get off long enough to eat, drink, and poo and then right back on! Don't put food or water close to her, because it could draw ants around her and the eggs. Congratulations!!!!

Rob, lots of silkies on New England Poultry Fanciers on FB. Those folks are all Silkie Crazy. Maybe they could ship some eggs. Closed group but drop my name if you need to. Good people. Funny like here. Lol

Just candled the eggs and the 3 silkie eggs have lovely veins and a tiny little heart. Only one of the pekin is fertile. Do I wait a few more days before removing the ones I think are duds??
