    Does anyone have anything very important about silkies that I need to know so I will be prepared when they hatch??

    I had silkie one day olds last year, they got picked on by their own brooder mates, and I had to separate them for a while when they were 10-12 weeks old, then I put them in with the next batch of chicks (they looked like giants at that point to the 2 week olds), and they did fine, integrated well with the younger birds and then again in with the main flock once they were older.

    They are adorable -- good luck.
