    My silkie lost her baby around 1 ½ weeks into the development. It's been a week and a half since I took the egg from her. She still keeps making a nest even though there is no egg. Poor thing:/ . About how long will it take until she starts laying again? Also, is it safe to candle an egg daily until hatch?

    I would only candle 2 - 3 times MAX. a week. Every day is too much.

    I think 2-3 times a week is too much.....I only do it 3 times max during the whole incubation.
