    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. I have my broody Australorp sitting on a clutch of Pams Pride eggs. My white silkie, Ying, ( the black roo is Yang) has gone seriously broody. Can I divide the clutch between them as I don't want to start more chicks right now?

    That would be fine. She will take to them. Not a problem. I would go for it.
