My first try at this. Please be patient with me. One of my silkies went broody last week and today I see she has 7 eggs setting. She is fine. ....being a great mommy it seems. She occupies a small coop with her araucana boyfriend Jack and her sister Coco. They all get on well. Jack literally sits at her side a lot and it is adorable. She hops up & eats & drinks in a big rush and then sets again. OK, my questions are: 1) Can she continue to stay with them in this small coop for the laying term & through her hatch safely? Or should I at some time seperate her? Will the roo be kind to peeps? 2) Can I place some other chicken eggs under her..... for her to hatch for me during this time? When is it too late to add them?Or can I even pull hers and just replace with eggs I want? 3) I am confused.....do the eggs she lays over the course of the 8 days she began.... all hatch on different days as well? Phew...........Can ya tell I am NEW to this?
