    Does it usually take Silkies longer to hatch from the time they pip? I set RIRs and Silkies and 9 RIR's have hatched while none of my Silkies have. Is it usually a longer process for them? Or are RIR's just fast hatchers? This is my first time hatching eggs in an incubator so any input would be great!
    Thanks all!

    I've had some hatch within a few hours after pipping and then some that have taken almost 24 hours. But, I don't think they are any different than any other breed.
