    I have to say this has to be my best batch so far. I haven't lost any since the day 7 candling and this is my first 100% to get set (silkies from Marie). I have 9 silkies from Marie and 8 Araucana from Jody (hinkjc). I hope I get a good hatch. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    btw I have them in the egg cartons, didn't have good luck last time I tried it, so I'm kind of nervous [​IMG]
    I will post pics when they hatch [​IMG]

  4. Good luck! Why didn't you have good luck with the cartons last time? What was the issue.

    Is this day 19 now? Oh boy! [​IMG]

    I think it was a humidity issue last time and not the cartons per se. But I only had 1 chick from that batch and a couple pip on the bottom and seemed to drown. Even though I don't think the cartons had anything to do with it, I'm still leery [​IMG]
    yes, this is day 19 [​IMG]

    We have a pip! One of the Araucana just pipped. I was starting to think they might wait till day 21 to pip. I will post pics when they hatch
