First time Incubating

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone I'm new here! I have decided to try and get some eggs hatched but I would love some tips. The reason I'm starting is because my adorable silkie bantam rooster died yesterday, he meant the world to me, he was my first chick I had I even named him, Dean. I would love and hope that I have baby chicks that look like him. So again please if anyone has helpful tips please share!
