    I just had to post my good BO Mommy. She hatched out 5 babies a week or so ago, but my EE took over mothering when she continued to sit on the eggs still waiting to hatch. So I decided to break down and buy her some silkies. she's so good with them

    Too cute! The one little one next to her appears to be asking "Mom, how come we don't look like you?" Haha:)

    Thanks I'm not sure how this will all turn out, I went ahead and moved her into our old dog crate so no one could take over for her. She's still sitting on a few eggs, I don't know if she will give up on them or mother them all? It's been since Sunday tho and she's still sitting on them.

    I would keep a very close eye on her for awhile, I've had broodies kill babies that they didn't hatch. They DO know the difference.
