    Her last egg just hatched this morning. She now has three blue silkie baby's. My question is, everytime she sits, her both her feet come out to the sides. I picked her up to get a little bit of excerise and she just fumbled around a little like she hasn't walked in days! And well, she hasn't really walked, she just stayed in her nest box since sunday. Now that her last baby is out of the egg, when will she start getting up and start being her little hen self?

    She'll probably get up and walk around soon, don't worry! And congrats on the chicks!
