I got my wish- one of our Silkies is setting! She currently has about 16 eggs from all our different hens. It will be interesting to see what turns out! As of now, we're at about day 4. I'll keep posting! Here are some pics:

Wow how exciting...
Thats alot of eggs for a small hen.
We just hatched 7 chickadees successfully and one dead in shell and 3 eggs doing nothing.
It was the best and most enjoyable experience

It is! Of course, several of them are bantam eggs.
We hatched several chicks last spring... This little hen was one of them! (Check back on some of my older posts- I even have video of them hatching!)

Aaaawe lucky you! I will keep checking in to see how it is going. I want little chicks so badly but it is just way too cold here for my hen to even think about hatching.
