Just hatched 8 silkies on the 9th. I had them shipped and they had a hard ride. The box was damaged. I started with 12 eggs. First candled 3 weren't fertile so they were discarded. The others looked like they had been laying on their side in shipping and looked sad.I left them in the incubator anyway. I'm so glad I did. 8 hatched on day 21. No obvious deformity. One left. If it doesn't hatch by Tuesday I'll have to discard it.I've been on pins and needles but it was worth it.
