    I put two silkie eggs in the incubator, and one died because the incubator got too hot :'( they were about a week apart. the other one somehow survived and is now in my brooder. But thats not the cool part. a chick that was a lot older that I was keeping with my quail gets along with him perfectly! I'm not sure how much older he (Im preeeeetty sure he is a he) is but these are some pictures of them...[​IMG]
