I can't wait to see photos! Do you have photos of the adults? How many do you have?
How long do they incubate for?

I don't have photos of the adults as this is my first time hatching them, got eggs from a local breeder and should have 2 hatch out. This is the ones progress by this morning, it's hatching 2 days early. Likely to be out by later today! 21 day incubation period.

I haven't joined any forums, my dad grew up in rural Alberta and when I was in preschool we hatched ducks. Not new to it at all, already figured out the person I bought the eggs from wasn't giving them enough vitamin E. Oh well, it's what to expect from a Kijiji ad lol.

How do you know they weren't getting enough vitamin E?
I have a lot to learn about chickens!
My friend just got 6 Rhode Island Reds to keep for the eggs.

I've always wanted to touch a silkie to see what they feel like!

Pure bred silkies feel like a longer haired dog in some ways, at least that's the best way I can describe it.
