I had 13 silkie eggs out of 14 to freeze in shipment. After candling on days 10 and 15, I kept the single viable one remaining in the incuator hoping it'd hatch; it did. This morning, it was in the incubator all hatched out and dry when I got up to check on it about 4:30 A.M. It's now 4:54 A.M., and I just now returned from the barn empty handed. I put the little chick under one of my two silkie hens, and she sat down on it. I left, hoping that she's taking care of it because if I have to raise a single chick, it'll be a real pain in the neck. This is the third time that I've put one or two chicks under one or both of my silkies; they've always taken to them immediately and raised them without their being the least bit broodie. I'll wait until after daylight about 8:00 A.M. to go to the barn to check. Lecha no later; keeping my fingers crossed.
