    OMGosh! Adorable! I am hoping my silkies sit on their batch of 4 eggs but so far no broodiness. Not sure how long to wait for them to sit on them. Took the advice of forum and marked each one with pencil so I can tell the new eggs from the ones I am hoping to have as babies. You are so lucky, enjoy them!

    Thanks! I am a very proud Mommy!
    I have to say that silkie's are the friendliest and calmest of all the hens
    I've had,cochins are next in line. But I will never part now with silkies,,my Favorites!!
    The rooster let's me hold him,and loves being caressed,he's a doll!

    Quote:I'm sure she'll lay a few more,,mine layed 6 then went broody,I left her alone to do the
    job and she did great! You don't really need to intervene, they're naturals at it! Enjoy!!
    I will definitely do it again next spring, so much fun![​IMG]
