    How exciting!!! [​IMG] to see veins and on so many eggs!

    I set 9 silkie eggs recently and on day 3, 6 were showing veins! Shipped from Florida to Arizona. I know your excitment. And the silkies are such cuties! We have 2 in a brooder and i'm so in love with them! [​IMG]

    Wishing you the best on your hatch!

    Great!!! The last batch of shipped eggs i put in the bator 16/16 were growing, My first time with 100%. The Buff Silkies I just hatched I started with 8 and 7 grew (and they spent the night in the mailbox when it was cold) I cannot complain about shipped eggs, so far it's been pretty good.

    Good luck with yours!!!![​IMG]

    I'm thinking maybe the cool weather is better on shipped eggs:confused:, even tho by incubating in the winter, I will have a laundry room full of chicks:thumbsup.
    I'm am so lucky to have an "animal lover" for a husband:thumbsup:thumbsup and a big laundry room:lol:

    The cooler weather is definitely better for shipping hatching eggs. I received 10 late last month, 9 were fertile and 8 ended up hatching. That is my best rate so far for shipped hatching eggs.
