My 10yo son has very few interests but about a year ago he took a serious interest in chickens! Since I try and encourage all activities that interest him, we have spent a good number of hours at chicken shows and swaps. He has even bartered a few times to get new chicks! Anyways, this spring, after a loose dog killed our beautiful silkie rooster, we decided we would try and hatch some silkies. Ry and I did hours of research and then set the eggs, nothing hatched. We decided to try again and I ordered another dozen silkie eggs, we candled them last night on day 16 and there is nothing. This is getting very upsetting. As a parent, I really want my son to be successful and learn.
For the life of me, I cant figure out where we are going wrong. Here is our set up
humidity - 55%
Any help would be appreciated!!
Also, if anyone knows where I can get some silkie eggs, I would like the info!!
Thanks is advance!!!
