    i got 60 eggs in my sportsman and i just candled last night for my first hatches this year and i'm shocked at the results so i had to share!!!!!

    i got shipped eggs in from lydia 5 of 6 serama eggs candled fertile and 10 of 12 silkie eggs are fertile!![​IMG] i'm so excited i'm dieng for these babies to hatch to meet them but still got a long way to wait! i think that is outstanding for shipped eggs!! awesome lydia thanks so much!!!!

    the batch due the next day are from my showgirls i got in 7 and 6 candled fertile, my buff/white silkies 12 eggs-12 fertile, and i think it was 6 my mixed color silkies all 6 fertile, woot!!!

    the others are a few days behind or a week behind so i can't candle them yet to early. at this rate in about 2 weeks i'll have lots of peeps to spoil i can't wait!!!

    i'll keep ya all posted how they do and post pics in a few weeks when they hatch.

    thank you! i can't wait to see them all either!! [​IMG] i just got a 5 tier brooder too so will have lots of room for them all till they get big enough to go to the grow out pens so i'm excited to beable to put it to use too!

    this is our first serama eggs and our first from lydia's lines so i'm totally thrilled to be hatching some of her cutties. i'm gonna be taken lots of pics when they hatch, i'll be a proud momma of my new little ones,lol.
