    Silkie eggs, the small egg tray, Brinsea Mini Advance Incubator

    Hey everyone. Does anyone know if silkie eggs will fit in the small egg tray of the Brinsea Mini Advance Incubator? I'm about to buy one and I want to figure roughly how many eggs I can shove in there :). Thanks!!

    Come hatch along with us!!! Last sets of the year! 10-18 to 11-7

    Yesterday all of mine were supposed to have hatched or started pipping. When I arrived home from work I noticed another one out. Yay! Put it in the brooder with it's buddies. I became a little concerned when I didn't see any other pips or hear any cheeping....so I decided to snatch a few and...

    I have chicks peeping! YAY! And this time I promised myself not to intervene this time but the peeps are on the sides of the eggs. Isn't that wrong? I swear I won't open the bator this time! By the way if you can't tell--->I've had chickens for years but I am really new to this incubator...

    I send my culls to a local "exotic" bird auction that occurs twice a year. No one knows who drops off all the silkies, most get a reasonable price, and I get a check in the mail a few weeks later. It's a good situation for us and works well.

    Oh! I am in. I have 15 very expensive silkie eggs that are set to hatch 11/7! We are just heading into lockdown this weekend. Last time I had temperature problems so I amped up my incubator with a large dial for better temp control, three thermometers instead of one, and one less curious woman...

    How old do chickens get before going broody?

    I had all types of breeds back in 2009. Wyandoottes, australorps, buff orpingtons, and quite a few leghorns. The best broody I ever had turned out to be a rhode island. She would let me pick her up from her brooder pen daily, go for a quick walk, and then get back to business on those eggs. That...

    How old do chickens get before going broody?

    Still waiting for my silkie to lay. So then she'll be my living incubator :)

    Silkie thread!

    She is a partridge, but I think if you were really to get specific you could say blue partridge. Either way, at a show just write partridge. She'll stand out all her own anyway...won't need a name to do that for her:)

    Silkie thread!

    I just bought new babies and I was so sad to lock them outside. My husband is already convinced I am a little crazy about them so didn't even flinch when I walked by him in the house cuddling my new favorite girl!

    What do you do to save money on feed?

    When I give them back their shells I usually just crush them with my hand and then put it in a container with other leftovers for the day saved for just my chickens. I do sell a couple dozen every sunday at church, that helps the feed bill. I also firmly believe that if it isn't laying an egg or...

    What do you do to save money on feed?

    I don't feed oyster shell. It worries me to think there might be a higher mercury count in there since oysters come from the ocean. I do feed them back their shells crushed in the food.

    What do you do to save money on feed?

    Give them my leftovers. Old cereals. Dry bread. Cracked corn that we feed the cows. The worst part? During the summer months I only feed them every other day so they go out and scavenge more. It works. Usually when I feed them(right before sunset) they are almost full off of bugs, greens...
