    for some reason I lost my mind completely and high bid some BBS silkie eggs on ebay Sunday... won twelve, she gave me 18. Candled today and there were three duds and one looked more reddish than the others. Not sure if it was one left and sat on a few days or if it went rotten. I will give it a few more days to see how it looks before I toss it. Now what am I going to do with fifteen BBS silkies!? I'm sure I will figure it out when the time ocmes. Of course they will not all hatch, and half of those will be roos, so maybe it is not so bad, five BBS pullets would be great!

    i AM counting them before they hatch! What is WRONG with me??? These eggs didn't get shipped. That was part of the reason I bouhgt them. They are only a half hour drive from here, so I went to go pick them up in person.
