I'm kind of worried that we might only get one. Has anyone introduced a chick to a non-broody silkie and had it go well? We have a hen that is the sweetest thing, but not broody at the time. I'd rather the hen take on the chick than buy one (we have others in the incubator) or carry it in my bra all day.
Never had it go well here, but you can stay nearby after putting them together and watch. I mean, if she's a nice bird (we don't really have many nice chickens), then she might take it on, especially if she's raised chicks before. You could also just hang tight until your others hatch- I had one lone chick that hatched the very first time I ever incubated, but I knew I had others coming shortly. I had to keep them separated by a clear wall for the first day or two (until the newbies got their legs under them) but they did just fine even being a little over a week apart.
