I need some advice. Here's the scoop... Had a broody barred rock. After unsuccessful attempts to make her not broody, we decided to put some eggs under her. We were most confident that the banty eggs might be fertile (we have 2 banty hens, and 3 banty roos). We put 5 eggs under her 27 days ago. Day 20 she decided to leave the nest: Then our little silky girl got broody and sat on them again (took over I guess). Now at different times through this process, eggs have gone missing and sweet DD decided to add eggs to the bunch!! Well, went to the bird swap in Kankakee today. Came home with 2 more adult layers. Went in to check on the others and lo and behold.....a baby chick!! It was in the original nesting box with the other 6 eggs, but the silky was in a different nest. I put the eggs and the chick back under her. Is this the right thing to do? Do I need to do anything else? How will it eat and drink? Will she take care of it, or do I need to take over? So excited about this. I almost bought eggs today to put under these two, but changed my mind. Would appreciate any and all advice. Thanks everyone!
