Well one of the other silkies finally found herself a boyfriend with our Welsummer cockrel who is 4 1/2 monthes old. She laid a egg in front of April and she quickly snatched it up a week into her broodiness.
Well I candled today jsut for kicks and one of the 5 is fertile and boy was it kicking. by my calculations it should be due on the 7th
I'm so excited!
Will it be ok with mom outside in the coop ( 8x12x6) with 4 other banty (3 silkies and a WCBP bantam) or due I need to bring her in a few days before. Will the other birds bother the baby or do I section the pen off
