    Hey everyone, I am still learning all this and new to the chicken world. My little silkie pullet just started laying eggs about a week ago and she's got a little white silkie rooster snow ball in with her. I would like to hatch out those eggs and really don't know what's involved. I kinda of need to ethier read a book on incubating eggs for dummies or something. She's not broody yet and not sure when that will happen. I know you need a incubator and that it takes 21 days, that's about all I know. I would greatly appreciate any help that I can get. I would love to see what the chicks would look like. [​IMG]. Thanks Diane
