    She is just a mixed up bantam chicken but she is large enough to cover all five of the eggs under her.

    Not trying to hijack the thread, but I read somewhere you still have to turn the eggs if they are under a chicken because they are too big. I'm putting a few under a silkie in a couple days. will I need to turn them for her?

    Well she is a small chicken i will post pictures of her on here she is about the size of my cochin bantam hen. I will put a x on all of the eggs and see if she is able to turn them.
