I just got 6 baby chics two days ago. And today one of my silkies decided to start setting on a hand full of eggs that we left in the coop for a few days. I would let her set on them and hatch them but I don't think our rooster is fertalizing the eggs... at least I don't see him. Soooo... I was wondering if I was to take the 6 baby chics out of the brooder and slip them under my silkie at night will she take them as if they were hers? Or does that only work if the hen has been sitting for a while ?
