    I just posted some a couple posts ago.

    Here's a run-down as it is now.

    6 of 7 lav orps had hatched when I left this morning, the remaining one has pipped.
    5 of 6 silkie/cochin have hatched, the other has not pipped, so I'm doubtful it will.
    1 of 4 mutts hatched, no pips in the other 3, not sure what happened to them.
    Ducks -- 7 locked down, I think I saw 4 or 5 pips, only 1 was really working toward zipping, 2 others have bumped the shell again, but not really zipping.

    That's awesome!! I thought you were only getting 2, so 6 is a bonus!! My eggs are fertile too! Can't believe that young cockerel did the job with all that fluff!

    :gig I loved road trips pre-kids. My girlfriend has a time share in South Carolina and we would drive down all the time. But she's a really bad driver, so my line always was: "I'll drive, you be the DJ"....brought back memories for me when I read your post! :)

    That's exactly was SIL's are for!! Mine made my blood boil!

    I would have done the same. At that point, you know they are more then ready to make their entrance!

    X2...me too!!

    So I have a question about the eggs I put in the incubator. @RavynFallen probably can answer it. Last night was 5 days and when I candled them, on most I could see the tiny embryo and eye with the veins spreading out (looked like normal development). But on 3 of the pullet eggs I can only see a tiny bit of red veins, right in the center of the yolk, but no embryo or the eye like the others. There is just like a small circular shape of red veins. Any idea what that means? Should I keep any hope for them?
