    Thank YOU for helping...I am new to this Chicken stuff...
    I have two Rhole Island Red crossed with Black Sexton..they are my egg laying hens..and in their own coop...

    Last winter I decided to add a Crazy Silkie to the flock..well I ended up coming home with three very sick lil chickens...my two silkies are hens..however the farmers unique way of sexing the chickens was bogus and I now have this crazy Keith Richards looking Polish Rooster in the bunch...he is in with my silkies..

    OK soooo I have never done baby chickens..and there are 4 Silkie Eggs in the coop..HELP!

    Unless you want chicks and the silkies are broody, take the eggs and eat them.
