I went out to open up the hen "dog house" and check on the eggs she was on. Today is day 20. At first I was shocked because I saw an empty shell and then I saw the chickie!!! I am so excited it actually worked!!! Now 2 more have hatched and the other 3 have pipped. I just watched one hatch out that I considered tossing out about a week and a half ago. It had a stain on the shell, looked like it was leaking or something. I figured it was dead, but wasn't sure so I kept it and figured I would have to toss it out later. I am glad I waited!!! It is a cute little buff silkie. I have 3 blue/splash and 3 buffs. Yipee over here!!!!
