    So here's my cruel idea. Give a broody hen three cornish x chicks to raise next time she goes broody! [​IMG] Poor thing won't know what's wrong with her babies. Imagine 3 cornish x chick babies trying to sleep under momma hen at 6 weeks old!!![​IMG]

    If you do this thing, you MUST post pics of those gigantor babies with their mom.

    It would be hilarious! Unfortunately by silkie hen is so nervous she would never sit on eggs, and my only good proven broody is raising a chick now so will probably skip next year. [​IMG] I will so take pictures of this though if I can pull it off!
