Hi, I joined a few days ago. I'm from Australia, a place called Maraylya, north west of Sydney. I have just made my first post, so this is actually my second. Thought I should introduce myself first (or second, lol). I have Silkies and a couple of months ago bought a brooder from ebay. Hatched 12 from 24. Am trying dry incubating this time to see if I can get a higher hatch rate. I have only watched chickens hatching from my hens, so this is a new experience. I decided to try this way because my coop isn't ideal for breeding. I love Silkies, they are so gentle and don't attack the garden, lol. Have a great day.
