    Okay, I have a bantam silkie hen that is broody. I want her to hatch eggs. I don't want to have anymore chickens. I wanted to know if a silkie can hatch and care for red golden pheaseant chicks. I also wanted to know which is louder red golden pheasants or coturnix quails? Which is smaller when they hatch? Thanks and here's a pic of my pretty girl.

    Yep your silkie could hatch either one. I don't think either one is loud enough to be a concern. Both are tiny as chicks, with the rgp ending up larger when full grown.
