Our darling silkie "Princess" decided to become broody more than a month ago. We finally stuffed 4 chicks under her 2 weeks ago. She was doing great, teaching the chicks to drink, eat, scratch, peck etc.etc and keeping them warm too. Last night we came home to find her back in the nest box. She had the 4 chicks under her, but also 2 eggs that our other hens had laid. What??? Is she planning on hatching new eggs while taking care of her 4 chicks? Am I at risk of having her abandon the chicks?
