    Medicated starter is fine. I use Dumor 20% starter. It's non medicated. I've been feeding non-medicated the past 3 years and so far no problems with coccidia. Knock on wood.

    im no expert on silkies facts are never even seen one in real life but that does not look like on i have seen good luck on your other eggs hope they hatch keep an update on how they are doing and get pics of more of them if they hatch also how long have they been in the bator i would think by 21 22 days you would at least have more pipped by now if it has been that long
