will silkie mother my chicks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a young silkie who was broody but had no fertile eggs.  She is no longer broody, but I have incubated silkie chicks and wonder if I can put them with her after hatching?  Will she attack them if she is no longer sitting?

No. She is not sitting.

Some hens do very well with chicks, and silkies are very mother-y, but she's not broody, and non broody hens can be very aggressive.
