    Silkie with Wry neck… HELP

    Hi all, I was recently given a few silkies & silkie mixes a lady could no longer care for. While they are dirty, they appear healthy. I suspect one has wry neck though.

    December 2021 Hatch-A-Long

    1st timer here! I’m picking up a dozen F4 OE eggs tomorrow! I’ve also got a chocolate silkie sitting on 3 eggs! Silkie eggs should hatch around Dec 15. Does the 21 days for the OE eggs begin when I put into the incubator tomorrow?

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    Thanks so much, yes they have been a joy to watch. And I never knew how good chicken mommas are! Aside from her squishing one, which honestly I think was a total fluke.

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    Here they are; about a month old now! Compared to a newly hatched silkie. They’ve grown fast and even have their little “pants” now! We lost 2, 1 to a predator and momma squished one… 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    They have come over out of curiosity, but momma put that to a stop real quick. They are a part of the flock now and even go off on their own a little bit!

    Worm Type?? 🪱

    Just sent the hubby to TSC to pic up Equimax. Now I haven’t noticed worms in other poo, but I assume I treat the entire flock as I did last time? if I do need to treat the entire flock, I have 3, 2 week old silkie chick. Should I treat them? If so, how much should I give them? I also have 8...
