Set eggs under my Silkie broody

  1. Well, my silkie hen went broody, again, about 2 days ago. So I put 7 Silkie eggs under her, and 1 large egg from my EE hen and a bantam barred Cochin rooster. I wonder if that egg will hatch. Since it is a bantam and a standard.

    Well in 21 days, I will have some chicks, again! lol.

    Hope she is a good mamma for you!
  3. Im sure she will be. She is very sweet. Im hoping that all the silkies hatch. I had about 20 Silkie eggs in the bator, about 2 months ago. And when it came time to hatch. My bator humidity wouldnt get high enough, and only 1 hatched. Lucky for me, it is a girl.
