I am new to hatching and just set 29 silkie eggs! This is my third try and I am hoping the outcome will be better than the first two! 1st try was 7 eggs bought from ebay. I had 2 hatch...not bad for shipped eggs. 2nd try was 18 eggs I picked up at the Northeast Poultry Congress - I had 10/18 that were fully formed but lost power due to a blizzard on day 20 and only had 4 or the 10 survive and unfortunately only 1 was from the dozen Golden Egg Silkies. 3rd try: Shipped from BYC'er. I put 29 eggs into my Genesis 1588 w/ turner @ 7am. I am addicted to hatching!!!!
