i have a broody silkie hen. she is 9 months old. i do not have a rooster so i was able to take home some fertile hatching eggs. i got 2 polish, a millie fleur, and 3 silkie eggs under her now. she gets off the nest early in the morning and eats/drinks then runs back to the nest and continues to sit. is that ok?? Also is that too many eggs under her? there not visible ever and she looks like she can handle them. Also i was wondering, i'd love to see her raise the chicks herself but how do i feed the chicks the medicated feed if the mom isn't supposed to get it. i'd hate to have to seperate the mommy and the babies but if i have to, i have to. all suggestions and help is greatly appreciated!! THANKS!
