    I have a handful of Silkie eggs still showing no signs of development on day 10 in the incubator. What day should I give up on these and toss them out?

    I ordered a lot of them but do have a few lavender eggs of our own. I've been fortunate so far, I think. Out of 52+ eggs I still have 37 showing proper development. I have 12 paint eggs going in the incubator tonight, fingers crossed!

    Your right, it is a lot! Yes, all Silkies... I had read so much about shipped eggs and a poor hatch rate that I wasn't worried about setting so many. I can't imagine that many will actually hatch![​IMG]
