I just hatched out 9 baby silkies in my incubator. They are from shipped eggs. So I know nothing about their parents. They are 5 days old now. And they are sneezing. I have a 250 watt heat lamp on them. They are in my spare bedroom, in one of those 50 gallon plastic tubs you get from Lowes. They are on paper towels now. The first 3 1/2 days I had them on pine shavings, but took out the pine shavings because I wasn't too sure if that was what was making them sneeze(dust from shavings). They still are sneezing. Their nose's are clear. No fluid coming out of them. Eyes are clear too. They shake their little heads alot. I was giving them vitamins and electrolytes, but read somewhere online not to give them anything but plain water in a small chicken waterer with 5 drops of baby polyvisol vitamins without the iron for the first week. They are on medicated chick starter. I raised 12 silkies from another batch I bought when they were just a day old. I did put vitamins/electrolytes in their water from the time they were 2 days old. They are 13 weeks old now and doing find. I do have one little hen that is alittle on the thin side. She eats fine. I have wormed them all with wazine and safeguard. The other 11 are fat for silkies. I've checked for mites and lice and don't see any, but dusted them anyway with sevins dust. I have my incubator up and running again with 18 more silkie eggs from a different seller. They are shipped eggs as well. They are due to hatch July 29. Just any advice on raising silkies you could give me, I would most certainly appreciate. From types of bedding to watering, vitamins etc. Thanks!
