    my silkie girl decided to go broody this winter, moved her into the closed in garage. I noticed on the 18th day of her setting she started talking a lot and moving her head. Very alert. On the 20th day I could hear the babies chirping in the egg. The first baby hatched out this morn. at 5am. Today is day 21.[​IMG] Would like to share pics. can someone let me know how.( Dec. 22)
