    I want her to have babies, and she is in with a male, so should I leave the egg in there and just let her fill the nest up, or should I take them everyday and put them all into the incubator? I just don't know if she'll sit on them and incubate them, and I don't want to take the chance of them ruining. I don't know...it's my first silkie that has finally started laying, and I know they are great broodies, but it's her first time, and I'm NERVOUS!!!![​IMG]

    I hope you get your answer... I have not had any of mine hatch yet. Since we have such a varierty of birds I would afraid to see what a turken-blue laced red wyandotte would look like. [​IMG]

    I would wait a few days to see if she lays more and if she does then I would put them in th incubator.
