Let me tell you, when people say that silkie's are the best broody's, they were right. I have a silkie hen that laid 2 silkie eggs and then went broody. I have a silver spangled hamburg hen in the pen with the silkie's because she has no friends, lol. Needless to say, the ssh hen laid in the silkie nest box and she stole that egg. Well she seemed pretty determined and me being the big push over that I am, I let her sit on 2 ssh x silkie eggs. I didn't think it was hatch time yet, but I went to check on her and the eggs today and as I lifted her up I heard a little chirp. This is what I found..... the cutest little chick ever. I am so excited.
