    I had put 12 silkie eggs in the bator and 6 hatched and don't you know my one silkie went broody at the same time with 7 eggs and hatched all 7.

    Good luck I hope you get someone to join you. [​IMG]

    I put eggs under my broody on July 9, so if the next day is Day 1, then mine should hatch on July 31 too. I don't know though, when I compare what I saw when I candled, a couple of them looked more advanced that the other. I'm going to start 'pacing the floor' on July 28. This is the first time I have ever tried hatching anything!
