I don't know what is going on! I'm so disheartened! I had two buff silkies hatch last week that totally beat the odds. I had all kinds of problems so i was ecstatic that the two hatched. Today at lunch I came home to the littlest buff silkie limp and laying there and acting like it was either choking or couldn't breathe. It was just gasping and has no life and was just limp. While I was holding it, it expired. These chicks are the only chicks I've ever been able to hatch and live longer than a few hours. The other buff seems fine but now i'm terrified for it too! Out of another 8 eggs to hatch, four hatched and two died...... Do I have a black chick killing thumb? Somedays I just feel like tossing in the towel and taking up another hobby that doesn't involve living things. I've tried to do everything right this time and still there are deaths. Why can I keep every bird from the hatchery alive but not the birds I really want?
