    Hi there...I am hoping someone can give me some insight. I have 2 broody silkies and hatched 2 beautiful chicks that are doing great little over a week ago. I have had two eggs hatch this last few days and neither one made it more than an hour. I noticed the mother pecking at these babies. The second one I got out of the brooder the second I saw this, but it was still to late. I have several more eggs I am trying to hatch and I don't want this to happen again...it so sad!
