    Well, my eggs are not due until tomorrow or the next day (slightly staggered hatch [​IMG]) but we already have two beautiful little silkie chicks that have hatched. I'll post pics when they are out of the incubator as it is impossible while they are in there.

    I am a little concerned that they are knocking the other eggs around. Is this going to do some serious damage? I am situated so I can correct RH and temp very quickly, so should I pull the two that have hatched to prevent more mayhem?

    I have been warned that silkies are evil, but I was NOT prepared for how darling these chicks are and YES I can already tell they are evil, because they took one look at me and declared themselves dictators!
