    Is there a specialway to hatch silkie eggs because i tried to time and 3 out of 12 eggs hatched then i got 1 egg out of 20 to hatch but he didnt make it because his insides were outside and he lived for 2 months because i had to hand feed and water him! so is there a special way because i want to hatch somewhere around o silke eggs get about half or at least 6 and hopefully get 3 hens so i can keep them [​IMG] please heeellpppppp i need every droppp i can get!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
