OK, so every year that i hatch silkie eggs something comes out wrong. here are my 2 stories Story 1: the first time ever that i tried to hatch silkies i got 15 eggs off of ebay. When i candled them 12 were fertile. out of 12 eggs i was left with 3 beautiful chicks. sadly i couldnt keep them Story 2: So a year after that i said hmmm..... lets try again. so then i went on ebay and found 12+ silkie eggs. i bought them. when the delivery man was coming up my step the package flew out and i opened the door as fast as i could and i caught them. then me and the deilivery guy cracked a few jokes and then he left (he was rly funny) When i opend the box to see the condition of the eggs they looked good. nothing was cracked but the eggs were a little dirty so i did do what you are suppost to. take a damp wash clothe and rub really gently. so i did it to the realllyyyy soiled spots. i turned the incubator on and i kept the eggs at room temp for 2 days. when the incubator was just right i put them in and the temp never moved up a degree or down. when i candled they they ALL were fertile. so another 7 days passed and it was time for them to hatcg. im waiting and waiting finally one pops out. BUT............. He was born with his inside on the outside of him. i hand fed him for 2 months but then you could tell he was in a lot of pain because his insides (outsides) were dryin up so i had to put him to sleep. Is there a special way you have to hatch silkie eggs?
