    It's day 20 and my 7 silkie eggs are soon due to hatch. One of them has pipped and another keeps rocking, and I hear a little cheeping! I hope they all hatch. I couldn't get the humidity above 70%, but I think it shuold be ok right?

    Your humidity is fine. I keep mine from 60-70% and try to keep it from going higher. It will go higher when the little ones add their own humidity to the air by hatching. Good luck!

    Oh my gosh...She is adorable. I had wanted to order some silkies, but they only come strait run and I don't want to deal with roosters! I am vegeatraian and so even the idea that one that I bought might end up somewhere else is not pleasant for me! LOL But everytime you guys post such adorable fuzzy pics, I want some! So stop it![​IMG]

    I have silkies in the bator and you are making me so anxious to see them. Dang. I am only on day 8. I hope they all make it. So farm my buff sizzles are a no go. But I have plenty of silkies, black and blue, and some might be sizzles. And I have two salmon faverolles and two BB Red OEGB eggs too that are developing. Man, I can't wait.

    Well, two more hatched on day 21, but now it is day 22 and the other 4 haven't even pipped. I am still hoping, but I feel like it's hopeless.
