Do silkie eggs tend to hatch early too?

    I thought all bantams maybe hatched a day earlier than the typical 21 days? Does that go for silkies too? I am bummed because today is day 20, and no pips on my TWO shipped silkie eggs that made it to lockdow [​IMG] I'm probably being impatient as I just had some d'uccles all hatch a day or two early..... I hope the silkies are just being pokier? Anyway, do they typically hatch early too? Thanks!

    Oh, and FWIW, 9 did not make it to lockdown [​IMG]

    Just hatched silkies for the first time. Shipped eggs, 4 of 7 hatched. I did not have any pips until the very end of day 20, 2 out about mid through day 21 and the other 2 beginning of day 22. Be patient.

    Tomorrow is day 24 for me with my shipped silkies, one hatched at day 21, waiting patiently for the others but am not sure they will make it, how long should I give them??
