    Getting pips! My silkie lost interest early on in setting, but then my BCM went broody, so stuck the eggs under her.

    One of the eggs I accidentally collected and put in the refrigerator early on. That's what I get for not having on my reading glasses.

    Pics tomorrow or later.

    Here is mama Olivia and her 3 chicks. Chick 4 hatched but she kept throwing it out of her nest. When I got a closer look it's scull didn't look completely closed.

    Nice chicks. I have some legbar eggs under a broody, due to hatch out in a week - fingers crossed

    I know what you mean about the glasses :/
