    Dray,,, we are hatching buddies.. I set 21 eggs from seller Nava on the 30th as well.. and a test egg from my own rooster.. who knows why I had to add that one extra I won't candle till day 18 but I look forward to hearing how your eggs develop and hatch...

    I have some from seller Bargain set on the 26th.. luckily for me.. I found a grea deal on an incubator that someone didn't want and will use it as a more lockdown with other eggs still turning.

    Keep in touch... nayone else set eggs on the 26th or the 30th.. I love company....

    Okay I'll join you all if I can. I got some silkie eggs from Mary - second group.....I didn't count them - I just put them in, I believe I have 27 eggs. I'll count when I candle. This is my second batch from her!

    It's so hard for me with silkies, since they are so tiny!!! I so want to help them, but I gotta keep my hands off them! I also have them in an incubator where I handturn using a pull rod and I try to pull it so gently with them...Yup I'm a wreck already and only one week into this [​IMG]

    I'm excited yet nervous...LOL, every time I do this I get nervous, so can I be hatching buddies with you all???? Pulllllllease???

    Happy and blessed and exciting hatching to us all!!!!!

    Well today is day 20, at lockdown on day 18 it looked like 5 of the 12 were still good. No pips or wabbles today so lets keep our fingers crossed.
