    Hi All,

    I have Silkes and Polish Frizzles, in my incubator.
    I'm on day 19 and also in lock down.

    I have a very beautiful friendly Faverolle who is broody and has been for a week.
    She has got off her fake eggs twice for a very small time frame in a week.

    I was thinking tonight I should pop a few Silkie under her, she wants to be a mummy so bad.

    Does anyone think that's a bad idea? I'm in lock down so even though I'll be quick I should open the incubator at this stage.

    Please help.

    If nobody's pipped in your bator, I don't see the harm in giving the silkie a few eggs [​IMG] ......... If your eggs have pipped, I'm not sure if I'd reach in or not...maybe really quick!!

    Thank you, for the quick reply.

    I think I may give it a go and let everyone know what happens.
