I will give Pebbles a chance. She is protective of her eggs. My hubby got bit a few times last night trying to check on how many eggs she has. She has 3 eggs. How many can she hatch? My silkie hatched 8 slw without a problem so I was thinking 10-12 eggs should be no problem.
The only time I checked is when they got off the nest. That was once a day. I didn't want to get bit. I know there were 4 eggs under SS#2 the last time I checked. There could be more. when she got off the nest another chicken would sit it the nest.
