Moving Silkie mama, chick and egg.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hola everybody! Quick question, my Silkie hatched one egg this morning, one more to go. I've made a separate little brooding area for her and the new babies and I'd like to move her but wondering if it's okay to move the second egg? I'm almost certain she layed that one a day after the one that hatched today, so it will hopefully hatch tomorrow.
She's still in a nesting box in the regular coop but the big chickens (Cuckoo Marans) and the rooster have to go in there tonight as well. I'm a little concerned for my little Silkie and her babies now. Which is more of a risk? Relocating her nest, or leaving her in the coop with the big girls. Any thoughts much appreciated! Here's a fuzzy butt! smile.png
