    depending on what day the eggs started to be incubated expect chicks in the next few days!

    They should... I heard peeping coming from my silkie eggs yesterday morning, early. First pip was late last night, and we woke up to a zipping chick this morning. [​IMG] Peeping is good. If you peep at them, they'll peep back! [​IMG]

    thanks we are the proud parents of perchy perch as my four year old had named her. He popped and seemes to be drinking but no food yet? Can i put her back with her mom once the other egg hatches?
