Awesome! I love faverolle chicks!
Guess what guys, turns out, I'm hatching again! It was not in my plans, but my silkie hen went broody again. I could either break her up (which I don't have the heart to do anyways) and have her go broody in the middle of winter like she did last time (that involved her being in the basement, a big mess, a brain-damaged chick, ect) or just let her do it now and be happy.
She was sitting on a nest the other hens use to lay and had broken eggs all over her. I trimmed off the dirty feathers and set her own two eggs in her crate. She took right to them. Tomorrow I hope to get some bantam eggs to give her, when I can get some clean, unbroken ones.
Looks like I'm rejoining the hatch-a-long!
