Have a clutch of eggs and some silkies. Now what?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi. I've collected 11 eggs from my silkies the last 11 days. Can I put them all back in the coop for a silkie to hatch? I removed them because all my silkies we're going broody and they had just been broody for 30 days on bad eggs. I wanted to break the bloodiness. If I put them all together in one clutch, maybe only one hen will go broody??

Are any of your hens broody at the moment? I would check out these articles: Broody HensEncouraging or Discouraging Broodiness, and Letting Broody Hens Hatch & Raise Chicks.

Have any questions about breeds and gender? Check out What Breed Or Gender is This? fourm for help.
