I just purchased my first Silkie hatching eggs!!! What am I getting myself into.... I was telling my hubby that I am tired of my hens going broody, then deciding they no longer want to be broody when I give them eggs. So I told him that Silkies are great broodies and I want to hatch some so I can quit using the incubator and he said "OK"!! I couldn't believe it. So I purchased the eggs before he could change his mind! I should have them on Thursday and they will be going into the bator on Friday!!
