I just locked down 11 of my own silver phoenix over olive eggers and 6 silkie eggs The olive eggers were in the fridge for a while before I set them and I had a 16 hour power outage last weekend I left the silkie eggs in thier coop for a while hoping she would go broody but gave up and set them with the olive eggers. I have 4 more silkie eggs due next week. Yesterday I came home to find the silkie went broody so I let her have 3 eggs that were fresh and 5 that had been in the bator for 3 days (all her own eggs) along with my 21 bantam lavendar ameraucana eggs. This is her 1st time and she just started laying at the beginnning of April so we will see how it goes. She seems determined so far. Just peeked at the ameraucana's in bator #2 and 18 of those look great, I see veins and embies in there. What am I going to do with all of these chicks??? Have I lost my mind???
