    It's always a rush to hear the first peeps and see that first pip, you're right.

    Four with pips now. Maybe by in the morning I will have chicks. I don't see a pip yet in the one white egg I have been so hoping for a I have been having low fertility with them. I just set another doz whites to see if I get any fertiles. Every black silkie egg I have put in the bator has been fertile except one.

    100 percent hatch. I will take pics as soon as the last two dry off. One black that recently hatched it have a little trouble with leg. i think it stayed in shell to long.
    The funniest thing is that I have a brown silkie. It is out of my buff hens and problably splash Roo that I had to gether before I put them in with Rusty my Buff cockeral.
    Can't wait to show pics. Letting the last ones dry off a bit. I have quiite a few coneheads.
