I hatched 2 polishxsilkie chicks this morning and was wondering if I can bring in a silkie hen to mother them? Will she take them or is this dangerous to the chicks? We have a partridge rock that will sit on eggs for about an hour or two, but then seems to get bored.... would this be a better choice? Any input and advice is welcomed. The chickens we have now were raised from a few days old.... hatching is something that we have never done before. It is no problem to raise them ourselves, but thought they might benefit with a momma.
