    My two silkies who hatched today have bloody navels... what do I do to help them? Is there anything i can do...

    I set them in with the chicks that hatched on Monday but they are brutes! One even took the chick by the tail and drug it around the brooder (he's the terrier of the group). So they are back in the bator... at least until I can figure out what to do with them...

    The last two silkies I hatched were like that. They healed up on their own in a couple days.
