We have never hatched chicks from a broody before. We have one roo to 15 hens, but we have 3 Silkies that I have never seen him mate with. Right now I have a broody Salmon Faverolles (sp?) and a Silkie that are VERY broody. 3 days ago I let the Salmon Fav. sit on 6 eggs. The Silkie keeps fighting her for the nest, so today I let the Silkie sit on two eggs from today. Should I let them both be momies?? Or would that be too hard when they hatch? Also, is it too early to candle??? Thanks.
