    I am SO peeved at myself for having such butterfingers! I am on day 11 with a batch of mixed Silkies and I dropped one while candling! I have never done that and I am SO SO SO bummed! I only had 3 Partridge left of this batch, and I was so anxious to get some. Now I can only hope for a pair.
    Dang Dang Dang!!!

    Did it break or crack? I sealed a cracked one with candle wax...its on day 10, but its too dark to see if its developing. That really sucks though.

    Quote:No chance of repair, it was oozing yolk out the side when I picked it up off the floor. I SO wanted Partridge to breed. I still have 2 but watch them be 2 cockerels. I have a few Buffs. I mainly hatch Silkies for my 9-year old daughter so she can show them in 4-H, but I think they the fun to watch and have around. Plus, I hope I can make some of them my broody machines next year so I can hatch naturally as well as in the bator, then I won't drop them any more!
