I have had lousy luck trying to incubate our Silkie eggs, they get to the last 5 days and die in the bator. Sissie, one of the big Cochin girls is broodie, her eggs vanished though and I don't know what happened to them. Do you think she would sit the Silkie eggs? Deborah has 7 eggs but isn't interested in sitting on them yet.
Any suggestions to help us try and hatch our little Silkies??

Most of the time if a hen is broodie, you can sneek any eggs under her. However, the egg disappearance is unusual. Could she be eating them?
