I have a little silkie hen that has been sitting a nest sort of. She is on and off it. She keeps moving on to other eggs. The eggs have gotton cold at least 3-4 times. This moring I went out to candle the eggs and see if anything was moving in them. Lo and behold she hatched a chick. I only seen one but I didn't want to distrube her anymore. So if she can hatch with her bad track record there is hope for us all.
