    Cross your fingers something hatches because I couldn't see into the eggs, they're too dark! [​IMG] They're 'fertility testers'...

    Nope. I've hatched Bobwhites and Chukar partridge, but not Buttons. I got some for eggs for DH's work lunches and to keep inside as pets. Hopefully, SOMETHING hatches.​

    Well thanks for the well wishes [​IMG] I'll update when I see anything going on in there. It's also Day 17 on my 2 dozen chicken eggs, so I should have babies by the weekend, with any luck.

    One hatched this morning. Probably around 5 or 6 am. It's white or silver. I cannot believe how small it is!

    I think it's a silver... the whites tend to be yellow like a leghorn chick. [​IMG]
    What a cutie!!! [​IMG]
