    These are some silkie eggs I got from Melanie at Fluff'nStuff.

    We had an egg turner malfunction last night, so I had to take all the eggs out to fix it. We put some towels in the dryer to get nice and warm, then put the towels in a bowl, put the eggs in and covered with another warm towel. Hopefully that didn't hurt them any. I figured since the eggs were out we may as well candle real fast, while my friend fixed the turner, and see what was happening.

    Well out of 8 eggs, 2 were completely clear and 1 looked like it had developed and died early. But the other 5 had big wiggly babies! Yay!!
