I have 3 silkies that are broody right now. The first one that went broody her eggs are due today. Well when she got off her nest this morning. It was my chance to look at the eggs to see if there was any pipping going on. She has 5 i think. 2 were cold. I guess those ones were not under all the way. But none were pipping.....So i have some hatching today....So i went and got 2 babies for her. She didnt want anything to do with them. So i put them back and took out a egg that is already pipping. I put it under her. I am going out in a hour to see how things are going. Now this is the first time that i ever did this. Has any one did this before and everything work out ok?"Or was i stupid for doing something like this?
