    So I've been off here for a while, busy with my broody hen! It is winter here, but quite a warm winter for a change. Instead of 5 degrees C outside, it is a comfortable 12 degrees C, give or take. So I think this is the reason why my white silkie, Teal, has decided it's a good time to raise some chicks!

    At first, she just had one egg, so I thought, "it wont hurt to let her hatch one". THEN, I noticed I weren't getting any eggs from the other hens. I looked under Teal and she had collected 12!

    So, that is quite a collection of eggs!
    The Rooster is a gold laced wyandotte crossed with something else, white skinned, maybe a polish due to his crest and feathery feet.
    The eggs in there are all fathered by the roo mentioned above, and the hens are:
    - Warren (the big eggs)
    - Black skinned, mostly black feathered gold laced wyandotte crossed with polish or silkie.
    - Buff coloured gold laced cross, but more speckly than gold laced.
    - and of course, my two pure white silkies.

    She is now separated from the rest of the chickens, in her own little broody pen in the garage...

    it always warms my heart to see a nest full of eggs about to hatch... all I can say is none of them will have black skin...
