    Well, this morning at 9:00am it turned day 18 for 2 shipped silkie eggs, and 5 of my silkie eggs. I am going to transfer them to the hatcher later tonight. Im hoping that they all hatch. Esp. the 2 shipped silkie eggs. One is a buff egg, the other a cuckoo egg. WISH ME LUCK! [​IMG]

    I just moved them to the hatcher. 1 of the shipped eggs, the cuckoo egg, was dead, and so was one of mine. So I really hope the buff chick hatches.

    Well, I have another pip on one of my 4 eggs. The other shipped egg is dead. I am so done with shipped eggs. [​IMG] I keep getting crappy rates. Hardly any developing and then only a deformed chick that hatches, and dies 6 days later. [​IMG]
