    I have a broody Silkie, big surprise! :lol she is sitting on nothing, hasn't laid in three weeks. Three of her eggs hatched in my incubator yesterday. I'm wondering if she'll take the babies if I put them under her. Has anyone else tried this with good results?

    Ive heard of people doing this and slipping em in at night had best results. Good luck
