    My eggs go into lock down tomorrow..I stop turning these small ones a half a day early, and mark the eggs because some of them need more time to try and turn. I candle. Another one gone! What is going on? This isn't normal for me to lose this many from this gal. Shipped yes, but I've had great hatches from her. Opened the egg, the baby looked to small. Fully formed, with a huge...and I mean huge amount of yolk. I was surprised that this yolk was in this tiny egg. When I have laying silkies, I never see a yolk this big. Might be the reason? [​IMG] There wasn't much blood to be absorbed. Will have to candle on day 20 with the three I have left. Oh man! [​IMG]

    Well, that pretty much covers the broad range of emotions we all go through incubating eggs.... [​IMG]

    Hi everyone. I've missed ya'll. Between hatching, company, tummy flu and trying to pack for a funeral.........overload. Babies are all doing great but will be just checking in and out of the group for over a week. Things need to slow down a bit to say the least.

    Going to spend some time going over posts this morning before company wakes up lol[​IMG]

    Wow, that's busy. Sorry to hear you're headed to a funeral. :hugs

    I was at a memorial celebration on Saturday at a non denominational church, it was organized by a hospice and was for several different people at once. They had prayers, poems and songs from many different beliefs it was quite beautiful, I hope to be remembered in such a way.

    Sooo.... Is incubating an addiction?? Because I find myself looking on ebay and the hatching egg thread here a lot more than i should, looking for other breeds I "might" like, and I haven't even finished the first hatch to see if I am even doing it right! My husband has said NO to more which I get and agree with. Because right now we're on temporary ground. Our home should be finished right around Christmas, so maybe for a Jan/Feb/Mar hatch along lol.

    ETA: Autocorrect strikes again!

    @Sally Sunshine >> how are your air cells looking?

    They look really good..in the few that are left. I'll take photos of the few. I have them marked. Need to get the humidity up today.
