    Well, I just moved my 4 buff silkie eggs to the hatcher. They were on day 18 as of 9am this morning. These eggs were shipped to me from FluffNStuff.

    I candled them and they all look great. They are all very active and moving around.

    Wish me luck! [​IMG]

    Ill post pictures when they hatch.


    ETA: As of 8:44pm 3 of the 4 eggs pipped. YAY

    I just looked, and another PIP! [​IMG] Im so excited [​IMG]




    ETA @ 6:22pm : I just looked at the thermometer and it said 125 degrees. OH MY GOSH! That scared me, but the other thermometer in the incubator said 100 degrees. That dang thermometer almost made me have a heart attack. The temps on the thermometer have been spazzing out, so I got a new one. lol
