Silkies?

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by matthewschickens, Jan 3, 2010.

  1. I was looking at getting Silkies and wondered how many chicks could I graft onto her or how many eggs could she take?

    Thanks!

    Huh?
     
  3. How many eggs can you put under a Silkie to hatch?

    That isn't a question that anyone can answer with accuracy. It depends on the individual bird, and her size. With that being said, I wouldn't put more than 6 to 8 under a single hen.
     
  5. Ok,

    Thanks!
