    Hello,
    I have been hatching chicken eggs for about a year now and okay at it. But I could NEVER hatch out a silkie, the embryo grows all the way to a chick and it dies. Is there like a certain temperature or "trick" to hatch them? I am wanting to purchase silkies and I don't have a broody so I want to make sure as many will hatch out.

    Thanks
