One of my silkies, Chicky Hen, is broody now! My grandpa has been wanting to get a new flock of chickens because his last hen died a few weeks ago. He only has his 8 year old dying rooster now.

I put 4 silkie eggs under Chicky Hen and she is so small she can't fit another. hopefully they are all hens or at least 2 are hens. if there is more than 1 rooster im sure my grandpa will eat him. I will hopefully update everyone once i candle the eggs in a few days.

I reposted about marking her eggs and taking one away.

another one of my silkies went broody. Karen this time. Looks like we’re getting quite a few chickens. I candles all the eggs today but it was bright so I only saw 4 of the 6 eggs had veins.

All 6 are developing! Hopefully we get a nice assortment of colors. We have a white hen, a buff hen, and a dark brown hen, so hopefully we get all 3 colors. Our roo is a buff silkie so I have a feeling we will get a lot of buff chicks.
