I found my first egg today. I wanted my silkie to hatch for themselves. The egg is in the nest and when everyone went to bed tonight it was still there all by itself. I was told on my I found an egg thread" I will have to incubate it if noone is sitting on it. I am confused now! I thought they would lay for a few days then go to sitting on the eggs. Do I need to bring this egg inside? I do want chicks if it is in fact fertile. Can't see why it would not be I have 4 roosters in there with 15 hens. Will she not lay more and then sit on a few? Why is it all alone? The temps will be around 50 here tonight the egg is in a coop inside a covered run.
