    My silkie hen, Biscuit, just hatched 3 out of 3 buff orpington chicks. I had 8 others in the incubator which all hatched (best hatch ever 11 out of 12 eggs) and Biscuit adopted them so she now has 11 little buff Orpington chicks to raise. She's such a little silkie she could only cover 3 eggs, but she thinks all 11 are hers. Here's some pictures of the happy mom and family.
