Hello, I have tried hatching Silkies...and all of the hatching eggs were either infertile to begin with or they went stinky (rotten) so had to be tossed. I really don't want to try anymore with the hatching eggs because it was very sad for me to deal with all of them being 'duds or deads'. There will be an npip hatchery in our area tomorrow with day-old Silkies of all colors - sexed (so I can pick a pullet and know it's a pullet). My hatching eggs are due to hatch on the 18th-20th (really on the 19th but hatching can happen early or late) I want to know...if I pick out a little Silkie girl tomorrow - will she be okay all by herself in our brooder? I plan on holding her a lot and giving her a lot of attention...but I want to make sure she will be okay with no company in there, or if it will have serious ramifications later? Will she be accepting of newbies in "her" brooder after she's been in there by herself for 2 weeks? Or...should we just plan on having 2 brooders and introduce the newbies over a period of time? Thank you in advance Edit - we can't get more than one tomorrow because we have a city ordinance limit of 6 hens...and I'm being very picky and I only want 1 each of my absolute favorites.
