    My poor darling silkies (OMG! Did I just type darling and silkies in the same sentence?!? [​IMG] )

    Poor, poor Jethro and Ellie Mae. Only 22 weeks old and I'm already planning their future children. [​IMG]

    I've been browsing the egg auction category. How many eggs can a silkie handle?

    We usually put 6 regular size eggs under our broody silkies. Not sure how many silkie eggs, maybe 9 or 10?
