Ooh, so do we get to guess? Are they all the same or different?

Oh, yay. I hope you post pics of those silkie babies when they hatch! What colors might you end up getting? And how many eggs are you putting in?
Happy Hatching to both of you!
I put 35 eggs in the bator this morning. My eggs were shipped, so I candled them first b/c I read a lot about the aircells sometimes being ruptured and/or displaced during the shipping process. Sure enough, many aircells were displaced & 4 ruptured... the aircell was seen in the egg as a floating bubble. I added the ruptured ones to the bator anyway, but I dont have high hopes for them. I'll candle in a few days and see what's going on with them.
So, of my 35, only 11 have normal looking aircells (normal shaped & size and in the correct location). I'm really hoping the air cell displacement doesn't have much effect on the hatchability of the egg.
