Hi guys
i've got a broody silkie and wondering how many eggs i can roughly fit under her.
I'm unable to post pictures as the computer won't let me.
I'm hatching three eggs of four breeds in the hope i get at least one hen from all of those breeds .
So 12 eggs,
will that be to much and will i have to buy two silkies?

Cheers Brittany

they will try and sit everyone you give them but for a small silkie i think 6 should be a max. good luck with them. gotta love them silkies.
