Just checked on my Silkies eggs, I have 2 hens that have gone broody, and I heard chirping!!! Two of the eggs have pipped (externally)! Going to check later on! I'm so excited these are my first homegrown babies! The only thing I'm wondering is if they are pure Silkies because I did have my entire flock together just a week before I seperated my Silkies and have heard that rooster sperm is very potent. Silky/Phoenix....wouldn't that be interesting? Could also be Jap/Silky, Lakenvelder/Silky but hopefully Silky/Silky! Anyway, if they aren't pure, my Silkies girls all 4 of them are broody to the extreme and I will try again. YAYAYAYAYAYAY!
