I didn't put a picture of my bator and eggs on here that I set when I set them and I see others are doing that now too so here is mine.  I have already candled and removed 4 eggs that were clear.  Three where my sister in laws and 1 mine.  Most of my eggs I can't see into.  They are EEs and dark browns.   So I just left them.  I candled just now her white egg that I could see veins in at the first candle and could see movement.  Gives me hope for mine too.  I will not candle any more because it is useless.  Just hope for the best.  She had 15 to start and I had 14  now she has 12 eggs in and I have 13.  That doesn't mean all a good because she has some that I can't see through either.  I have ee's and red and black sex link ee cross eggs.  She has a mixed lot of ee's and light bramas, maybe turken, and some other brown egg layers with various roosters.  Even some Banty roosters.  It will be interesting to see her mix.  I will be putting up a short wall between the eggs at lock down to keep them separate.  Hope they don't jump the wall. yippiechickie.gif

My computer wont read my camera card right now so will try to get it off after I turn off and try again.

The Chick That Wouldn't Give Up

Cotton my white Silky hen layed three eggs and started to brood them. I was keeping watch and two days after she started to sit tight I noticed she layed one more egg.
The three eggs hatched right on time and prooving to be a good mother she waited two days before taking her brood out to meet the world. Unfortunatly for the last egg. For this morning she gathered up the chicks to go out and meet the family. That is when the third egg hatched and I to my horror I found a dead chick outside the nest with one leg still in the shell! It was a cold morning.
I picked up the poor little thing and alas there was just a tiny flutter to the body. With out much hope I cupped the tiny baby in my hands and blew warm air on the unconsious chick.
I took the chick inside and sat down on the couch and kept up blowing, with tears running down my face and little by little more life was felt in the tiny body. It was 1/2 hour before the sweet baby gave its first cheep. Tears turn to tears of joy.It snuggled with me and after about 30 minutes, I put it under the heat in the tub I use for chicks. Knowing it could still die I gave a little prayer and left the room.
Well that chick thrived and after four days I decided to reunite the chick, which I now called Shamrock, for my naming theme with my Silkies is plants and flowers, and I felt he was one lucky chick, I took him out and put him under his mother Cotton, while she was sleeping.
The next morning I rushed out to see how my baby was and my heart dropped! All the other chicks was under mother getting food and my poor Shamrock was lying in the cold strung out looking again like he went to chicky heaven! I cried out and got into the coop fast! He was so cold but again there was life in the unconsious little body. Praying hard I took him in my hand and once again started to blow warm air on him! 
I must have gotten to him shortly after he knocked out for a miricle happen! He came alive much faster this time! He was so glad to see me! He chirp and snuggled with me and we became fast friends with him loving to have me hold him and play under my chin, rubbing and pecking me ever so softly on the lips.
I took one of his siblines away from his mother so Shamrock could at least know he was a chicken for I knew I had all the roosters I could keep and I may have to give him up. I was convince he was a roo for what but a roo would be able to come back from almost dead and servive to grow?
He did grow and joy of all joys Sham is a hen! She is healthy and happy being a chicken that I will never have to sell. I have thought of changing her name to Clover for Shamrock or Sham is a bit masculine. What do you think?

Ok I have an "egg art" contest submission...

 

(Have I mentioned how bad I am at art?)

 

Anyway...

 

I call this... Banty Egg Fantasies

 

IMAG0714-1.jpg

 

For those of you that need a caption (don't feel bad, even my stick figures need captions... but I can draw a mean benzene ring, go figure) - it's a banty egg looking in the mirror and seeing a huge double yolker.

 

PS Both were delicious for breakfast this morning.
