So i just got my silkies yesterday through the mail and the splash hen layed an egg in the box so i put it in there with her. Well i went out side and she layed a 2nd egg and she was sitting on them. About 5 hours later i went back out there and she was still on them and when i touched her she imediatly poofed up and started bitting me. I THINK I HAVE MY FIRST BROODY!!! She is with a blue silkie hen in a 2 by 4 foot pen with LOTS of bedding. My question is she is laying on the eggs like in the middle of the pen towards the side, will they be ok and hatch the eggs there? -Will she eat and drink on her own? -Should i do anything to help her? I will put up pics tomorrow, and hopefully she will hatch a rooster cuz ours died during shipping.
