Hi, my silkie broodies just hatched the 7th egg. The white silkie has not tried to follow babies around, she just stays stuck to the next. The blue silkie has gotten up and followed the babies around and taken care of them. Can I sneak a few more of my eggs that are due to go into lockdown in 2 days, underneath the white hen? Or, now that all their babies have hatched will they stop brooding?
Thanks!! The last egg just hatched a few hours ago.
