Hi , very new to this.
We have had only 2 silkie eggs actually hatch. Turning was stopped on day 18, humidity increased to around 65%. Prior to that the temp was 37.6C and the humidity 55%. The eggs hatched, the chicks were moved to the brood box. The chicks appear normal but won't drink or eat and slowly deteriorate and die.
We have tried showing them the water, dipping their beaks in it but to no avail. Theses were from 2 different hatches but were the only 2 fertile eggs. Long story and the eggs were from different sources.
Any hints anyone? Its got me tricked.
Thanks in advance
