My silkies just finished hatching some chicks. As they hatched i was taking the chicks out of the nest what I want to know is will they keep going broody and hatching the eggs since I was taking the chicks?
Greetings from Kansas, ginnyowens, and
! Pleased to have you aboard! I'm not sure of the answer to your might post in either or both of the following threads. Good luck to you!
would have left them with their mama unless she started ignoring them. Sometimes after they hatch a few they ignore the rest of the eggs.They are usually better off with mama who will teach them what to eat, what to drink and how to be a chicken.
Thanks for the replies. I will just wait and see what happens when they go broody again. Only reason I was taking the chicks from the mom was because I had people wanting to buy them so I was selling them as the hatched. I am fairly new to the chicken business so I am learning as I go.
