    Are they dead? I put them back in the incubator the moment I found them but they were already really cold. TEmp got down to about 58 last night. I really don't know how long she was off them.... we moved her to her own spot last night and I didn't think of putting her on her golf balls until she was settled [​IMG] so are the chicks dead? Has anyone else had this happen and still have survivers? Oh, they are on day 13 .... [​IMG] sight, how long should I wait before candling again? And what will I see if they are dead? I candled them just last night and they were doing so beautifully! Boo Hoo! Hard way to learn that lesson but not one I will forget now!

    My silkie did the same thing twice----I came home from work today, and they were all peeping. Try not to worry, they should be fine. Good luck!
