I think my mama silkie might be broody. She's been wanting to set on eggs one last time for this year, so I saved up her eggs and put 13 under her. It looks like she is setting. That means they are going to hatch out November 25th. They will be Silkie and BR or Silkie and Ancona crosses. Can she keep them warm enough or will I have to set up a heat lamp? **** UPDATE **** Okay, I set 13 eggs under her, and she laid two more in the nest while setting. Out of those fifteen, 13 of them are developing! It does look like 3-4 of them have quit though, so hopefully I'll get away with only 8-10 babies. I never expected that many to develope! Last time she had 6 eggs and only 1 baby, I expected MAYBE 3-4 babies! Looks like I'm going to have to find a way to heat the little coop she's in, because I don't think she can keep that many warm.
