The last few days when feeding I've noticed my Silkie sitting on her eggs, and pecked at me when I've tried to move her. My first broody! Only problem... No rooster. So I did what any sane person would do, I bid on some eggs on eBay to put underneath her. I'm in West Texas so temperatures aren't too extreme. Now, here is the unique situation. I got her over the summer, along with her chick and 4 peacocks that she hatched and raised. When we moved the peas to their juvenile pen I just moved the two silkies with them, because I've got a huge mixed flock and didn't want them to get overrun by the bigger birds. In reading it seems like I might want to wait until the chicks hatch to move mom and babies to the brooder house, or can I leave them all in with the peacocks?
