    My son and I put 42 eggs in the bator 3 weeks ago today. Well one of the silkie eggs never formed so it was thrown out early on. Now for the rest of the 41 eggs. There is 38 hatched out and 1 trying to hatch. I can't believe the good hatch we had. These were even hand turned. Just thought I would share.

    I don't know how to put pics on here. Ok final count is 39 chicks out of 42 eggs. I am in shock that the hatch was so good. Tell me how to get pics on here and I will do it.
