    Mama silkie hatched 4 of 6 eggs this week. 3 standard brown leghorns and a tiny little silkie. She's up and off the nest now, so do I take out the other 2 eggs?

    I'm going to have 3, maybe 4 silkie hens and one other kind of chicken that gets broody so I'm thinking I'm going to just let them do the work next year rather than using a brooder. This was alot easier and with a better outcome.

    I'll get pics tomorrow...they are just so cute!
