put in wrong thread Have this mix hen EE/buff orp/silkie she raised chicks last year and had gone broody last week. Sooo I was at the feed store and looked at the chicks grabbed some from the rainbow mix. Got 4,they might be speckled Sussex,welsummers or some other red type chicks. Then seen the bantam mix so I grabbed 5 ,4 of them look like black cochin bantams and one that looks like a blue cochin bantam. Took out 18 eggs she was trying to sit on and put the chicks under her .She started clucking at them after I took the eggs and they where all tucked under her. Will check them before daylight and give them food and put in a ramp for them to get down. Will take pics in the morning. The 18 eggs went into the incubator.
