I met a lady on craiglist-I was needing a chick for one that was very anxious - suprise hatch later that night I now have 2. Long story short, Mona the beutiful silky arrived to be a mommy to my two babies tonight. I turned off the brooder light and the babies tucked right under. she sitting there with two under. she didn't try to peck them or anything. I have never heard of this but thought I would give it a try. Has anyone tried a surrogate?
