    Candled silkie eggs I got, 1 is defineltely not fertile, so will be removed, 1 has a chick inside, you can make out its feet and head, and another is unknown, but appears to have a ring (I'll leave this egg in for a while and see what happens). I also have six eggs under a hen, not due for 19 days, but then again she did leave them today and they went pretty cold, hope this won't affect them too much. Anyway, 9 days left!!!!

    That's awesome!!! It's so cool that you can see the chick developing inside there...thankfully silkie eggs are white. It's pretty hard to candle a Marans egg, I would think.

    Pics ASAP!!! [​IMG] Wishing you luck! [​IMG]

    I won't be there for the hatch, unless its in the morning, I'm going to a friend's house, at least it means I would be staring at the 'bator all day long :lol
