Isn't nature wonderful! When a chicken will take the time, refrain from eating and drinking for weeks on end to hatch an egg, even if it's not her own.

Her Silkie chicken went broody, so Sista gave her a few duck eggs to sit on. Well, one hatched, and a couple more are working their way into the world. This is better than watching T.V. or playing Angry Birds!
