Ok, so my first two silkies are doing well. The one that pipped so early and spent 24 hours sitting there was quite sticky bythe time he got out, and even a quick bath didn't get too much of that stuff off his back and head so he's not the fluffiest yet, but he's going to be a doll when he is. The little white one decided to make it's appearance when she heard her sibling out and the chick music and had very little sticky on her head bt has fluffed up pretty well and is the friendliest little thing. Of course I will get better pics once they are better fluffed. Both were the earliest hatchers I have ever had, hatching out at the beginning of day 18.
Came from from running errands and had a nn zipping out. He looks so huge after having the silkies hatch...lol He was a little wetter than normal, which I expected because of keeping the humidity higher for the silkies. I haven't pulled him out yet to check the navel and feet. He's a loud one though. He and my video are motivating the second nn that pipped to make progress.
Now, for the rest:
there are 12 silkie eggs in there, one of which is externally pipped, 8 that are internally pipped, 2 that are a little farther behind and one I have no idea on.
7 Spitzhabens (out of 9 set with an early quitter and an after lockdown quitter) 4 are externally pipped the other three are internally pipped
I had stuck 4 nn eggs in there I had collected while waiting for delivery of the silkies not realizing how small the silkies are. (My nns are huge.) Surprisingly on eis out, one is working on it, one looks like a possibility and the last I will be surprised if it hataches.
So, hopefully the pippers will be out by tonight, which would give me 9 hatchers so far and very promising outlook on all but 2 maybe 3 of the rest.
