    Got up this am, mama silkie was off her eggs. So I took a peek, no movement at all now. So my question is this...how long will she sit on this egg waiting for a baby? If she's going to sit tight untill the eggs are taken or she gets a baby, I might hurry out this am to see if i can find anyone with a few fertalized eggs and give them to her. If not, I wont worry about it.

    ohh well... i cant seem to find the answer myself unfortunately and I cant find any local source to get any eggs so, i'll give her a few more days of standing guard then to "the deed" and let her get back to her normal day to day. Better luck next time I suppose
