I bought a gorgeous pair of splash silkies from Ohio and took them to my upstate farm to live, but on the way to NY from Ohio, there was an egg, so I put it in the incubator with my two dewlap eggs. All along, I figured that my first hatch would be the dewlap toulouse eggs, but while I was worrying night and day about THEM, this little silkie egg was doin' its thing. My husband is the "Official Candler" and he told me yesterday AM that he saw movement and heard peeping, so I set up a second incubator, with the higher humidity, and last night, when we got our first PIP, we moved the egg to the new incubator. All morning, nothing happened. We work at night, so gave up and went to sleep at 1pm and at 3pm, when my husband got up, he checked and there was a fully hatched CHICK!!!! YEAH!! I've tried not to disturb it, but how soon can I touch the baby? I know that at 24 hours, I can move it into the brooder and I am going to put a stuffed animal in with it since it is a single baby, but I want to touch it NOW! Anything else special to do for a single chick? Should I have the temp a little higher for it? I'm more worried now that it is here than I was when it was in the 'bator. I only have a few days left on my goose eggs, and am so concerned about them because of the low hatch rate, but this little one has really made me feel better!!! I want to hold it.
