Our Silkie, Fluff, has turned out male (the crowing should have given it away) and he's courting/courted our Bantam-Cochin, Beryl. The rest of the flock are four larger, standard layers. Here's the thing ... Beryl has become broody and we would like her to raise a chick. How do we handle this? Do we need to separate Beryl and/or chick ? If not, how do we retrieve the rest of the daily eggs? Will the others be ok with the new addition? / Thanks for any advice. Beryl " #scarlettjohanssoning '
