My partridge girl went broody but didn't have eggs, so I gave her 5 of my white silkie's eggs. That started on 11/15. This past weekend my white silkie went broody and so I took a couple of the later eggs from the partridge, and gave them to the white, so she has a couple of her own eggs to set on. So the partridge has 3 of the 5 and the white has 2 of the 5. The partridge didn't seem to mind and the white is very happy to have the 2 she has. I was sure to let the partridge keep 2 that I can see chicks in, not sure what's happening with egg 3, 4 and 5. See what happens when I stay home from work?
