    the test egg is going to hatch before the silkies so what do i do? it will be a 5 day difference. Will it pick on the new silkies and wont it be lonely? what should i do?

    First ...Do you have a place to finish this hatch with the test egg?...It's going to cause problems in the bator on day 18 when it needs to stop being turned and the humidity needs raised for it...your silkie eggs are 5 days behind it and they don't need their humidity raised so high its too early for them...

    Next if and when the test egg hatches just keep it in a brooder box with a mirror and a plush toy to keep it company....hopefully its not too far along that it will be alright with your younger Silkies if they hatch....my thoughts
