Okay, we'll give her a day or so. She needs the rest - she was my wrong-ender. In the meantime, I am proud to announce that two more Silkies have joined the mini flock. We got another dark one and another light one. The light one is still dragging a bit of unabsorbed yolk so I'm putting her in a little cup for a bit. But the best part is that when the dark one started zipping I called Katie to come over, and since the yellow one got into a race with the black one for zipping speed they ended up hatching 3 minutes apart. Katie got to watch them both! Her response? "Gee, Gramma, when I see chickens or other birds flying, I'm gonna remember what hard work it was to get born!" Yep.....that's my girl!
So far the tally is 3 dark and 5 light. One more egg just started zipping too. @RubyNala97 I can't even being to tell you what it was like seeing Katie's face today. You should be very proud of the quality of the eggs and the packing. I'd have never tried this if it wasn't for the encouragement of @amylynn and others on here who thought I could do a good hatch even when I didn't think I could do it. We still have 5 eggs that don't seem to be doing anything now, but I'll leave them in for a bit yet. One I'm sure was a late death - the other four I still hold out a little hope for.
Thanks! Whooda thunk, Blooie with over 50% hatch so far.
