So I have this little silkie that has been sitting in a nesting box, on eggs and even when I take the eggs, she stays there. For days! So, for fun, I took two eggs, marked them and stuck them under her today. I am hoping they hatch in a few weeks. And if they hatch, I am hoping they are eggs from my new hampshire reds. But my rooster is a black copper maran. I just segregated him yesterday, but hoping todays eggs are still fertile from yesterday- should they be? Im new to all this. Its all really a chance, but itll be fun to see how it unfolds I will keep you all posted with what happens. What are you experiences with this?
