    Hey guys!
    I set 18 eggs in my bator on the 30th of Sep. I went through so many doubts and hard time when i thought i killed all the eggs. Every question i had was answered, every doubt turned hopeful, thanks to all you guys!! I nearly had a panic attack on the 17th when i found out that thier air cells were too small! But thanks to you guys, every problem was solved!! I want to thnak all of you for all your help and support! i could've never done it without you guys!!
    So, yesterday i got the first pip!!! it is still steadily breaking the shell. Now, all the sudden i got another pip!! A day later (today) that egg started zipping! And really fast too! It hatched in about 20 min! A record time (for me anyway). But i really want to thank you guys so much for all your help! I could've never done it without you!!
    I will keep you updated on how the chicks are doing! I currently have one out, one hatching, and 5 pippers!! Thanks guyys!

    Heres the little love! I don't have a name for it yet!

    I think he's a silkie. It has extra toes! It's skin is a blackish-blue. His fluff is still drying off, fbut i think it's black. And i think i can see that he has white under his neck and belly. It's sooo cute!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
