    Hey guys, so recently, my ducklings have hatched and they're doing wonderful! have cute personalities. so the other 10 eggs that were under charlie have now moved to ryan and is doing a bad job at keeping them warm and i have a feeling they probably wont hatch, there are some that are moving around but anyways, is it possible to keep a couple eggs under two broody silkies? i have put two eggs, that ryan was keeping cold, under my silkies and they are all warmed up now, so is it okay to do that?
