What is the hatch percentage on a young broody hen? I have a silkie sitting on three eggs and wish now I had done more.
Um silkies r known for being the best mothers....I don't know how u got that info but silkies r known for being the most careful and loving mothers ever....look on YouTube..somewhere there is a video of a silkie mother risking her life to save her chicks.AlexTS113 said:I think that there is a 50% chance. Also, do you have any other hens that are broody? I ask this because silkies are known to be bad mothers. They might kill the chicks, but if yours is friendly, you should be fine.
