Do you mean that they die after they've hatched, after they're in lockdown, after a week in the incubator???
Oh my, such bad luck. I was just out playing/taking pictures of the silkies I hatched in November and trying to decide which ones I'm going to sell. I have around 10 black ones, 2 white ones, and 1 showgirl. They're all so sweet and inquisitive. Such a hard decision and, as of right now, they're all staying. Did I mention I've got 2 different batches of mostly silkies in brooders in the house too with 15 or so more silkie eggs due to hatch on Saturday or Sunday....and 20 silkie eggs ready to go in the 'bator? Oh, almost forgot, I won an auction for .... yep silkie eggs, 12 of them, and they arrive tomorrow. The silkie mind control has me in it's wee little grip.
The only advice I have for you is to keep asking questions and keep incubating those eggs.
Hey, hello. You got a treat?
