    Today was only day 20, but 4 of the little guys just couldn't wait to join mom! She has 4 more eggs under there, so fingers crossed that there are more tomorrow! These are all my grand-chickies! (Oh, and 2 of the eggs in my bator are pipped too!)

    Here is my broody's actual biological chick (crossed w/ my EE roo). She really blends in w/ mom:

    One of the ones in my bator is out too!! Chickies everywhere! [​IMG] The Silkie should be able to keep the babies warm enough, right? It's only getting down to around 50 here, so I would think they'd be ok. And she's been a mama before so I know she won't leave them.

    I had 2 hens that kept laying under my broody the whole time. I just had to pick her up and get the new eggs out every day. I marked the ones I wanted under there so I would know what was what. When I saw that she had chicks today I finally sectioned her off in her corner of the coop w/ chicken wire. One of the hens that has been laying in there was running around screaming b/c she couldn't get to "her" nest box. I think she ended up laying in the yard somewhere instead of in one of the other 4 nest boxes she has to choose from. Stupid chicken...
