Looks like my loner has survived the night with my broody! Momma Opal is doing a wonderful job and I didn't hear a thing last night. I decided to call my loner "Edna" after my grandmother who passed away a few weeks ago. She loved chickens but never kept any. So far, I don't think that they have left the little nesting box. Is that normal?
So adorable! I love Silkies. I have two silkies coming my way in 2 weeks (they'll be 8 weeks old) plus 6 silkie hatching eggs.
