I'm not sure what breed she is but I think she's some sort of Duckwing and my black silkie has decided to join her. lol
I just sold all of my bantams a few weeks ago and only kept about 10 hens.There's a chance their egg's may not be fertile but I plan on letting them have some large breed egg's that I have in the bator right now.

I don't want anymore bantams right now especially since I only kept a couple and will be trying to convert that coop to a BBS Orp one.So I will try giving them some large eggs that I have cooking right now.

Just a word of caution. When we had this same thing happen, the babies when they were hatching the moms started fighting over the babies, tearing them in half and killing them. Watch close when they are hatched.

Huny - thanks for the warning. I have several broodies right now and several of them are co-nesting. I hope they can get along well once the chicks hatch.
