I have a Mama silkie. She has one chick she hatched on her own and one "replacement" that I slid under her as I took a nonviable egg out. She accepted both chicks as her own although neither were from her eggs. Cool! I triwd to give her 2 banty 2 day old chicks and she plumb out rejected them. Bummer! But they are in their own enclosure and warm and cozy. I just wish they could have a Mama. Guess she's over the new baby syndrome and just wants to raise the biddies she has. No big worry....the littluns will be fine.
