I'm there waiting with you @Cynthia12.
My little silkie that was keeping me company all day finally hatched! Only one left. It is the one that I accidentally started to eggtopsy too soon. I broke the outer shell very carefully and then felt movement, so I quickly moistened the membrane, put another egg shell on top of the spot, and then put it back in. This was yesterday morning. This morning I made an air hole just to make sure it could breath, and I also helped it to internally pip. It seems to be doing fine. I am watching the veining very slowly becoming less and less, and it is breathing fine/hanging out. I hear occasional peeping from it too .I'm thinking it will probably be ready to hatch tomorrow. Unfortunately I need to lock down my other eggs in this bator tonight, but they should be fine if I wait until tomorrow. At least I hope so. Any thoughts on that? Just this one more chick to hatch. I wish I had my little Brinsea (from school) right now. Then I could put the last egg in there, and I could get this bator cleaned up and on lockdown with my next hatch. I have some other eggs that need to be set in their spots too. So it is all one big cycle.
Doing my homework and checking on my chickie.
