    I don't know how many will actually hatch out of the 11 eggs my 3 (or 4) silkies are trying to sit on, but I do know a few are hatching today. I found a couple eggs had fallen out of the nest and got rather cold, its sad... I think one chick died after only pipping out a tiny little hole, poor baby. But I can hear 2 or three strong little peepers cheeping and kicking around in the other eggs. So I'll keep my fingers crossed! [​IMG]

    Also what do you think my 4 broody silkies are going to do with those chicks... I don't want them fighting over them!

    I do not know anything about broody's bu I am shure someone will.
    I would just keep and eye on them , and the eggs that got cold I would put back sometimes they hatch anyways.
