Well done! She had obviously decided her eggs were NOT for breakfast!
Hope she hatches some, she should as silkies are great brooders and delightful mums too!

She is a small hen with big attitude so its thick gloves later :?

Father or "who's the daddy" anyones guess I hope its D'arcy as they will be cream silkie orpington crosses :shock:  could be interesting if not its Sampson dark Laced Orpington cross silkie.  Whatever I am sure they will be lovely if any hatch.

I have the broodybox all ready, must say it looks comfy wouldn't mind it myself :)

Brillant :!:   Glad she turned up safe n sound.  "The attitude", is that a thing with Silkies :?:   As my little ball of fluff is definitely the boss hen. :lol:

Yes I think so but she was very good tonight when I moved her a bit of chattering but no pecking like Yummy does (ouch) I had big gloves on in case but she was good

Daisy my Silkie is fine with humans will let you pick her up (complains a bit but no pecking), but she's a little terror with the other hens some twice her size. :lol:
