I had too many fertile eggs for the incubator at school so I stuck 5 under my bantam mille fleur who was stubbornly broody at the time. Two or 3 days later she was walking around outside without a care in the world and I assumed the eggs were done for. Nope. When I checked, the bantam silkie was sitting on them. I candelled them and breathed a sigh of relief when they seemed fine. It gets weirder. A few days later the big maran (#2 in the flock) was sitting on them, with both bantams beside her. The chicks are due on Tuesday. I know it's said that the mom and eggs/chicks should be isolated from the flock - if you can call mine a flock. I have a mixture of 2 Polish, a Wyandotte, a Delaware, and an Americuana and the 3 "moms". They're just pets. I have no rooster (he gave my neighbor nightmares - another story). Should I still try and isolate the "communal nursery" or just put in a feeder and waterer for the chicks and hope for the best?
