    I started with 19 of cj's silky eggs and tossed 10 at day 8 so I have 9 in there now that I think were still alive on day 18. I started day 21 at 5 pm last night. I had 2 pips when I got home last night but one is in the wrong end. That one had made a pretty big hole in the egg and has it's beak sticking out. It is still moving and cheeping in there. I got one more pip last night and another this morning so 4 trying to get out. It looks like the 3rd one to pip is zipping now. The cheeping is getting louder.

    I have to go run the kids around now so I will ge gone for a few hours which has to be a good thing. I really want to reach in there and help them out. I thouhgt for sure I would have seen more progress by now [​IMG]

    I am not due today, but I have one turkey pipping. It is also taking a long time. Good luck. I have some of cj's eggs in the bator now, but they aren't due to hatch until next month.

    Noisy peep was born at 3:10 pm [​IMG] He is cheeping his brothers and sisters on like crazy [​IMG] It's so cute when he flops o his back and decides to take a little nap [​IMG] His belly looks a little red but not too bad. He seems very strong based on the peeping.

    My wrong end baby is still very much alive but I am sure that it piped through a blood vessel. My humidity dropped so I had to get open it to get more water in there so I grabbed the egg and picked a small piece off. The membrane underneath has dried blood on it. The good thing is that she protested very loudly to being picked up so she still has a fighting chance.

    As of right now I have 1 hatch, 1 zip and 3 more pips including my wrong ender. There are 4 that haven't done anything yet [​IMG]

  5. Im really due tomorrow. I have 4 RIR that are pipped right now. My EEs haven't piped at all. 1 of my RIR hatched but she didn't make it.

    I am so sorry about the RIR [​IMG] I am afraid that is going to happen to my little one that piped the wrong end. It seems like the ones that piped yesterday are having a harder time than the ones that piped today. The one that made it out didn't pipe until after 9 am today.

    What a cutie! I loaned my neighbor my incubator, their daughter is 13 and hatching 5 eggs ~ her first time.

    She is 3 for 3 with the eggs set on day 1 ~ we'll see how the other two do that she set on day 2.

    I told her I was JEALOUS that 2 hatched on day 19 and one on day 20!!!!! She is hooked! [​IMG]
     
  10. We got a LIVE one! One of the eggs have completely hatched out. 2 of them that were piped were having a struggle so I kept an eye on them. The shells were falling off as they kick and move around but it looks like something is stuck to them. Is that what I was reading in a before post which the person called it Siran Wrap? What should I do?
