My white silkie broody just hatched some Easter chicks for us! The chicks weren't her own, but were from our Easter Eggers and black Silkie rooster. At first I was afraid of how goofy these chicks might look, but so far they are adorable and closely remsemble EE chicks with furry feet. My silkie is still broody and sitting on two eggs. I'm not sure how much longer they have to hatch since she is an egg stealer. I tried my best to make sure to catch any new eggs that she took to sit on, but a couple of times she got away with hiding them. Is it OK to leave the two chicks that already hatched in there with her while she is still sitting on those eggs? Or should I bring the chicks inside to a brooder? Also, has anyone had a similar cross? I'm interested to know what these guys will look like. I'm hoping they look more EEish. Here are some pictures of our new little Easter babies!
