    first 2 chicks are fluffing up nicely and running all over the bator.
    Last egg has a teeny tiny pip in it, so hopefully i'll have 3.

    Heidi,
    I have 4 in the bator due next Wednesday, and
    I'm going to set 8 silkie eggs tomorrow!!

    What can I say, I'm addicted!!

    Almost forgot,
    oegb is solid black and mixed chick appears to be yellow from wings down and black from wings up, and has a rose comb.

    Once fluffed and in the brooder i'll post more pics!!

    last egg pipped and zipped about half way and came to a standstill.
    After about 9 hours, no progress, and i noticed the membrane was drying out, I helped the little guy out.
    It finally kicked out about 8:30 tonight, so I ended up with all 3 hatching.
    Hope next week I have another good hatch.
