    Leah, thanks so much! Your eggs were packed beautifully and there were no breakages that I could see. I will candle tonight before putting them under Sylvia to check for any cracks but I don't think there are going to be any problems! I am really hoping that all of these will fit under Sylvia and I don't have to mess with the incubator at all this time.... SO much easier to have a little momma do it. How many eggs do you put under your Silkies?

    MY silkies max out around 8 eggs but have had them on as many as 13 by their own choice and she did well

    WONDERFUL...thanks so much for taking a moment to post your results. I have crammed at many as 15 or 16 eggs under my silkies, but that probably is pushing it, especially if they aren't banty eggs. I use a "flat rate" priority mail box in nests and it seems to hold the eggs nicely under the hen, just the perfect size. Good luck with the hatch and please keep me posted!

    Thanks again!
