Getting In On The Action
Guess it's contagious. Now Baby Mama wants some eggs to sit on. When I went down to the coop this morning both Silkies were in the same nest. Baby Mama had stolen a duck egg from the white silky and was sitting on it. Thinking maybe she was just wanting to use that nest to lay her own egg I left her there for awhile. Silly me. When I came back sometime later she was still there. Rather than having them fight over the babies I took one egg from the nest and added another freshly laid egg from the ducks and put her in a nest next to the other one with her own two eggs. Now we have two Silkies with four duck eggs being incubated. Lets hope that male duck is doing his job or I am going to have a couple very disappointed ladies.
Thought you might get a kick out of this picture. One of the cats discovered the bird feeder stuck to the kitchen window and was sneaking up on it. You can see the little bird was unconcerned.
