    I can not wait for mine to start laying and incubating eggs. Shipped eggs are stressful. Keep us posted!!!

    Quote:My silkie chicks are due Aug. 19. Sounds like we are pretty close. When are yours due? Mine are in the bator. I expect you'll have a lot less stress than me though I've never had a broody [​IMG] Your silkies are beautiful! [​IMG]
