Fingers crossed! What day are you on?

Day five and none of my eggs are real dark and when i last candled could see in them pretty well so if I don't see anything new will try again on Monday. and if there is something new that would be amazing and very exiting!

Okay just candled and turns out we are on day six anyways kinda hard to tell with all the eggs, but mostly they are just real dark and doesn't look like anything is happening. I am thinking they may not have anything. On a good note one of my silkie eggs has veins! I could only see veins in the one though. So will do it again on Tuesday and see if anything is happening in the other eggs. If not I guess the silkie will be going at it alone. If it does hatch she is going to be one pampered chick.

Thats cool! Never seen baby turkeys.

I have a quick questian if I have to throw the other eggs out I would want to start more. Would it be best to wait for the silkie egg to hatch or could I put in more eggs. I am kinda leaning towards wait since it is my first time, but am not totally sure would it even work this late?

I would put more in now. Staggered hatches can be a pain but you'll get company for the silkie quicker that way.

 I will put more in, Tuesday or Wedensday if I see nothing in the other eggs. But the silkie will be going in the silkie pen that can maybe fit 2 more. The silkie will be more of a pet than any of my other chickens and I plan on having the brooder in my room, and the silkie with me whenever I am home and when I am not home I will give it a stuffed animal or something as it will HAVE to go in with my other two silkies. Unless it turns out to be a roo which I pray it doesn't then he will have his own pen as my other silkie roo doesn't take kindly to strangers. I can't put it in with my other hens as they are to mean. My other plan is if I put in more eggs I may give it one friend and they share a coop together, which may be the best plan. I am nervous about having two seperate hatches, especially since I am having trouble with just one! So will have to see what happens. My plan for this hen/roo please pray that it will be a hen is I really want to see about pet therapy. So as a chick I will have it with me around the house, and as it grows will learn to wear a harness and diaper and train it be good with people. So I am praying it will have the temperment needed to do that. and from what I hear about silkies they are generally friendly and good with people. So am hoping.
