    How exciting! Our little silkie we got in february is hatching her first clutch of 4 eggs. One pipped this morning.. and it will either be a pure silkie or a cross with Eagle, our Light Brahma. How neat is that!!!

    Ours is under a silkie hen. if the kids mess with it too much will she abandon them? they are dying to check on the little egg.

    when the chick chirps, does momma call back? just curious.
