    Has anyone had good experiences with a showgirl raising chicks of another breed. I have a showgirl currently sitting on black australorp and golden comet eggs two of each breed

    She should do fine :) Generally a hen doesn't care what the breed is of the chicks she hatches, and silkies (showgirls being naked neck silkies) are excellent mothers, so you should be okay.
