    My little egg hatched! I have a cute little buff chick. It just hatched and is still wet, it hasen't fully absorbed the yoke a tiny bit is sticking out. Should I do anything or just let it dry up? No other pips but I have my fingers crossed.


    Edit: I just went to check and my otheregg has piped! Moses never lets me down. [​IMG]

    The other piped egg hatched another buff! One of them has to be a girl right?

    Cyn, I haven't seen anything from your eggs, but technically day 21 doesn't start until 6:30 tonight so there is still much hope. You also have to remeber that these are pullet eggs.

    I just went to look at 'em and the second chick is a SLW/BO because it has a rose comb. I hope it is a girl mutts are so hard to sell.

    I would definitely expect some of them to hatch. All 11 of the ones I sent Miss Prissy of Charlotte's and Silver's candled with veins growing. And, Caroline's hatched for herechickchick and countrygirlcleelum all the way in Washington State, so I agree, there's alot of hope for them!
