hi everyone! i'm new, but I have been on this website a lot, looking up things for my sweeties! anyway, my slikie bantam went broody about a week ago, I gave her 2 eggs of hers that I kept, and she had 2 under already. they are doing great, and I think they are at day 6. i'm just worried though that at day 8 they will die. because the last time I tried to hatch her eggs they both died at day 8. and i'm just wondering why. and also am scared for the little eggs she has now. what could have caused them to die? I don't think it was a bacterial infection because they didn't have blood rings. their dad was a silver laced polish (Fonzie). these eggs that are incubating now, are pretzel's kids (luv u pretzel!) he is the son of Rose marie (RIR) and Fonzie (SLP). i know aracauanas have a lethal gene, but would these breeds have one?
