    HI,
    I'M BRAND NEW TO THIS!! I JUST ORDERED AN INCUBATOR AND AM INTERESTED IN HATCHING SOME SILKIE CHICKS. I CURRENTLY HAVE FREE ROAMING ROUENS (WITH BABIES ON THE WAY!!!) AND A PAIR OF MANDARINS THAT ARE KEPT IN MY BACKYARD. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE AND/OR TIPS ON THE SILKIES?[​IMG]

    THE EGGS WILL BE SHIPPED SO I MAY HAVE A STRIKE AGAINST ME ALREADY. ARE SILKIES A GOOD IDEA FOR A BEGINNER?

    HOW DID YOU "HELP" THEM WITHOUT HURTING THEM? I'VE READ ABOUT HAVING TO HELP THEM, BUT HAVEN'T REALLY SEEN ANYTHING ON HOW TO DO THAT.
