I was wondering!
@Sally Sunshine Hi Sally & Mike, I have 4 pips this morning This is suppose to be hatch day, but upon calibrating the therm/hygro in the incubator that they spent the first 18 days in. For some reason the thermo was off a degree. I had calibrated it just at the start of putting those eggs in. I'm not certain why or when it changed but that would explain why these eggs are running late. So glad I checked it before adding another full tray into that incubator. Sally thanks for STRESSING the importance of calibrating before EVERY hatch
EXCITING!!!! Come On littles!!!
My silkie eggs still aren't doing anything, but there's still plenty of time. More chicks have hatched and as a result I've had to open the bator to vent some of the humidity a few times. My windows are fogging up. They're popping out pretty quickly now.
More pics from the bator. Most of the chicks are hatching yellow, unless the mom was black.

I'll have to try the duct tape.
The box is clear and my older chicks keep coming over to check out the new babies 😍
What are they?!
They look like you last week!
No way man. I wasn't that funny looking.
Will you guys hush. Those are babies.

So far 2 of my cream legbars have hatched!!! I think they are both boys lol but that's ok as long as at least ONE of the other eggs that is pipping is a girl. And I LOVE their little puffy hairdos, so cute!
