    I let by bantam hatch her own eggs 6 hatched this AM How much time do I wait before I clean out the nest? There are about 12 total. This AM I found a silkie sitting with her. Whats up with that?

    Give her a few more days, some eggs hatch out later under a hen and she knows when she is suppose to get up and care for the ones that hatch out....
