    standard size or bantam size? My bantam RIR can easily sit on 6-8 full size (regular) eggs. I also have another RIR bantam sitting on 5 very large duck eggs very easily.

    The hen is a Silkie, a bit on the small size, and the eggs are Polish, they're slender and about the size of a Faverolle,
