    Tonight is day 13 1/2. I candled and had to throw out 10 eggs. I have 7 left that are good and 3 i think that have stopped developing, i left them in to see what happens. I started out with 24. The eggs were shipped eggs and when i cracked them open some were scrambled and some were watery and a few were like a normal eggs and i could see the bullseye so i know they were fertile. Darn postal service. But im happy with the 7 i have left. I check the bator every 15 minutes to make sure the temp and humidity are good. I am bound and determined to get these 7 to hatch. They are Silkies. I have 2 eggs of my own in the hatcher now and one that zipped out in 45 minutes last night so i know i should not have any trouble with the temp and humidity when i put them in there. (i hope) I want silkies so bad.

    I'm sorry you had to toss some of them. I will keep my fingers crossed for the 7 that are left. Keep us posted!
  4. So sorry to hear, and good luck with the rest. I candled on day 7 and threw 7 away.
