Hi my names Sean and im 19 (nice to meet u all lol). O.k...........i am a first timer to incubating and hatching eggs. I bought 6 Silkie eggs and an incubator and i have done a lot of research into hatching/incubating/rearing etc. I have been candling recently and i couldnt see anything so i though maybe they were duds but just a few minutes ago i changed the room of which i candled my eggs in and to my surprise i have found out that 5 out of the 6 are developing - woohoo lol. Well definetly at least 3 of them anyways. The other two i am unsure about as i can see a small dark spot but i am finding it difficult to see the veins coming from each side of the embryo. I placed them in the incubator about 12 noon on Monday just their (5th November) so i know its still early in developtment. Also this may sound like a reallys tupid question but......my mother is worried that if there are males then are the noisier than the hens if you know what i mean? My mother is saying to give the males away as she doesnt want then to 'cockadoodledoo' (for lack of term lol) throughout the day. I really do not want to give them away as i really would like my hens to lay fertilized eggs. P.s. sorry if I sound so naive lol.
