    I had one silky that wanted to take over all the eggs the females laid. I always felt bad for her cause she seem like the outcast of all the silkys but she was a good egg hatcher lol but I had a “chick murderer” in my clutch and I never could find who it was but a egg would hatch and one of them would kill it the next to some where three days old and we would find it dead or nowhere to be found and there was no way for them to get out. I hope it wasn’t her doing it because that would be creepy haha. Anyways I stop allowing the eggs to hatch and just kept the chickens I had as pets and for eating eggs. I named all my chickens after types of chicken we ate haha blacken, roasted, lemon pepper, Lawry season and fried lol so maybe that is why one kept eating the babies. I eventually had to get rid of them all cause we moved but I missed them.

    We just hatch 9 silkie babies from our magic fly incubator. We started with 14 eggs. First week, we had 1 quitter. 2nd week, we had 2 quitters. Hatch day came (day before Easter)and we woke up to 6 hatched babies in the incubator. As the day went on, 3 more hatched. 2 eggs didn’t make it. We have three mixed colors, 5 gray ones, and 1 little black one!!! Love the silkie babies!!! Congrats to you guys!!!!

    We had silkies and some other broody hens growing up. My mom would also take the Chick's away the first time the mama sat, and made her sit at least once more before she got to just raise the chicks. Always made me a bit sad to take them away. If you compare chick's raised by a good mama hen VS raised by humans, its pretty fascinating. I really like chickens!!

    Hehe you telling the guinea fowl to be quiet is relatable. My school has (had? Idk, we're building a new coop so they're not at the school farm atm) a small flock of guinea fowl and they're so loud all the time. One time they escaped their coop and onto the field and we had to corral them back. I feel bad, they really need more space, space we don't have

We were in a situation were our hens were so broody and we could not stop it in a good way. so we went ahead and just gave them sone fertile eggs.

    We had this hen years and years ago who always wanted babies but she wasn’t the best sitter. Technically she never turned her eggs and they would go bad. She would literally sit till she died if you let her. But I ordered 12 babies from McMurry Farms for her that I got over nighted to us and I put one in every 10 min during the night and when morning came she was the happiest hen ever.

    Silkies are my favorite breed of chicken. They are friendly and if you spend time with them when they are little chicks, they will usually come when called and sit on your lap and let you pet them all day long. I always kept my Silkies separate from all my other birds. We had a Silkie that was a multitude of different colors, she was the most beautiful chicken I've ever had. Great video, thanks for sharing this.

    I have a couple silkie bantams that have hatched many eggs for me. One even hatched Lady Amherst pheasant eggs that I got from ebay. I let them outside on occasion with my flock to roam. But under my supervision. They are excellent brooders and are nice to offspring. They even hatched parrot eggs for me when the parents didn't want too.
