I was sort of kind of secretly hoping that one of my silkies would go broody - like next spring. Well, I got my secret wish and one of the girls went broody about 10 days ago so I set some silkie and quail d'anver eggs under her. O.k. I was happy. Last week Mama #2 decided she wanted to go broody too - I put 9 quail d'anver eggs under her last night. As I was doing this, Mama #3 decided she wanted in on the action - I'll put some silkie eggs under her in a few days. Here's a picture of the maternity ward. At this rate, I'll have chicks in the basement half the winter. I'm an idiot!
