Ok, all day yesterday my two broody hens hatched chicks. I put a egg under them a day or two later than the rest figureing I would try it. The two hens are still sitting but are feeding their chicks. It is almost dark here. Do you think the broody hens (silkies) will stay on the egg and accept the younger chick if it hatches under them? Oh, btw, I will add pictures. This one will definately be a buff silkie and the other three chicks might be but two have spots on their heads.
