They are gorgeous and on my want list too...which is getting really really long hahaha Good luck! Glad to have more company I caved. I'm just an hour or so away from day 17 (counting down to hatch day) and I candled my eggs. I have made myself promise to not look again until much later. Out of my 4 (an unimpressive amount compared to everyone else's! Ha!), I have 2 eggs with visible veining starting! One egg has a rolling air cell and one looked infertile. But I'll be pleased with 50% from shipped eggs. Fingers crossed that those two chickies keep developing! Anyone else with anything? Right now mine should hatch on the 3rd. I'll probably be at work. My third graders have taken advantage of the fact that I love chickens and have asked if we can do a classroom hatch. I agreed. I am hoping to stream my personal chicks hatching here at home live via a UStream feed while we are in the classroom, so I don't have to miss out, and we can have a celebration before we officially start our life cycle unit! Clever teacher... [/quote/] I only have 9 . Im scared to candle because I don't trust my eye to see things correctly without convincing myself I ruined everything HAHA! Sounds great, congrats! I'm hoping for 2 out of 9 for my first time + shipped eggs so you should be thrilled with 50% I think.
