    My two white silikies are sharing a nest. It statred out with 8 eggs then they culled it down to 4 eggs. I went out today to check on them and seen one of my golden sex links carring off a dead baby chick, that she stoll from their nest. I moved the to new mommies in the back porch to hatch out the rest in a small dog creat. just now there is a peeping coming from out off the box. I have my first baby chick of the year. my family is so happy. Hope the other two will hatch out if not one baby for two momies.
