I have a white silkie hen named Tribble who I think has gone broody! (This is good, it's why I bought a Silkie to begin with!) When we let them out of the coop this morning she didn't come out, and just now I went to check for eggs and bring my flock a treat and she was still in her nest. I went up to her and she pecked my hand HARD and when I stroked her back instead of running away like usual she growled at me! I lifted up her hiney and she's only sitting on one egg. I only have one Rooster, a gorgeous Banty Dominique who is always with her and she's his "favorite". How many eggs can I fit under a Silkie? I'm thinking about letting her hatch some but I don't know how many. I have her eggs from everyday saved up just sitting at room temp in a basket in my kitchen, probably 6 of them. I could go pop them under her... I think a Silkie/Dominique would be bazzar looking!
