    Sounds good. 70 humidity is optimum but silkies seem to do better with it a bit lower.
    They should do fine. Leave them in the incubator till they are dry then shift them to the brooder.
    Congrats and welcome to byc btw..

    They eat Chick starter/grower feed.
    Do you have a brooder and a heat source ready for the chicks?
