I have two silkie hens that aren't broody or anything. They currently have golf balls in the nesting boxes. I've been taking the eggs (putting them in bator) and I have 21 eggs that should hatch a day after each other. I would LOVE, ideally, for the hens to take care of them. Do I take the golf balls out one day and pop in newborn chicks? Or can I bring out the eggs when they are pipping? What to do?
