    I have a broody silkie and we decided to let her try to hatch some eggs. She sat on them from the time there was one egg constantly so will the eggs hatch on different days? Will she keep sitting on them once one hatches?

    I just read in another thread that the hen will sit for 48 hours after they start hatching for any late bloomers. Good luck!
