Woke up to muffled cheeping out under my broody hen this morning. I was mosey and checked under her quick enough to count 5 babies! There were still 2 eggs I hatched. 2 of the chicks were still wet so hoping the other 1 eggs will hatch or did hatch. Very exciting, our first hatching. I heard chirping coming from the incubator as well. It's a day behind the hen.

Happy momma, other than the phone in her face!

Male silkies are the only ones I've ever heard of hatching out eggs. And the stories are not uncommon. That's how nurturing they are apparently.
