First let me say what a blessing this has been for my children and family. Last spring we decided to raise chickens as a project for our children. We started with pair of black silkies then decided to get five full sized chickens of varying breeds. Shortly after we started the chicken project we decided to acquire two fainting goats and add them to the mix. Currently we have a small petting zoo in our backyard and it's fantastic. On to my questions. Our silkie hen has been sitting on a clutch of eggs (15 to be exact, this is a whole other story) for about a month now, most of the eggs are not hers. When the hatching takes place what should we expect from the rest of the chickens, roosters and hens? We plan on letting things happen as they may and not intervene. What consideration do I need to make concerning feeding and tending to them? Thank you for any and all help. Please enjoy the pictures of our menagerie!
