I just moved out the original broody mom off the chicks and put my broody silkie on them (the other momma was attacking one of the chicks) the silkie accepted the other babies right away but still wants to sit on her eggs. she doesnt care if the babies go underneath her or anything but it will still be another good 2 weeks or more before those eggs hatch. will the babies be alright? and will they realize that the silkie is their mom and they can go underneath her?
