    Fellow silkie lovers! I'm starting this thread for all of us who are incubating and hatching chicks this month and into the New Year. Please join us and share your pictures, comments, questions and knowledge. There will be folks on here who are new to hatching, those who have hatched only a few times and folks who are hatching gurus. Please be supportive, helpful and patient. Good luck and hope to see many pics of Holiday Chicks!
    Best wishes,
    Tina

    I have a Broody hen with 9 eggs under her and one that is starting to sit I think I will give her 6 eggs to hatch. I am sure the other 3 will go broody soon as well:/

    Does it have to be silkies? I have 2 incubators running but I dont think my silkies are alive, but have a bunch more.

    Hi, you are welcome to join in with any breed. Silkies and Polish can be tricky to hatch so we hope to "coach" folks who want to give hatching a try and help brainstorm with those who want to improve hatch rates.
