So the silkie eggs look on the small side? Are you tracing the air cells on day 7,14,18? Can you post a pic?

I just found 2 silky eggs, I have a real cheep small incubator. what do you think? do I have a chance hatching these?  All info well come.  PS have a bigger incubator on the way when It comes can they be transfered from the small incubator to the bigger one?

Where did you find the silkie eggs? Do you know if they fresh or fertile? Does the small incubator hold temp accurate?
