One of my Silkies hatched out two RR chicks last week. Another hen sat unsuccessfully on some eggs, and today I went out and got 6 chicks, about a week old, and put 4 of them under the setting hen. She's accepted them very well, but I'm still debating whether to put the last 2 under her or under the first Silkie. I'd like to put them under the first so they have an even number of chicks.
