    so i had this ADORABLE blue silkie chick hatch under my black silkie hen, later that day i went to work, got home and found out my dad found him 60ft away from the coop in the weeds sitting in there screaming. my other hen already has 13 chicks so i didnt want to add to hers so i figured id just raise it tell i figured out what to do. i carried him around in my shirt and she would just sleep all day [​IMG] well finally the last egg my black hen was laying on hatched and she accepted this chick back. [​IMG] i miss the little guy. ill post pictures of my chicks later
