    Still early. Don't lose hope yet!

    I had lost hope for 2 silkies last night, and one pipped as I was looking in!! I heard it before I saw it. It was several hours behind the others, so I really thought there was no way. I'm hoping for another surprise on the last one... lol

    It means it's only day 5. Leave those friggin eggs alone [​IMG]
    Seriously, though, any development that early without a ring is still development, they may just be a little behind. When I do candle, I like day 10. That's the best day to see development before they start going dark

    That's the great thing about hatching. Once there is a little lull in action, you think that the eggs that aren't doing anything must have quit, then you get all excited when you get a new pip!! In my last hatch I had pips on Friday night and new pips on Sunday afternoon! I was happily surprised! I think it will be fun hatching on New Year's Eve...since I'm stuck home anyway. And guess what? I'm setting another batch this weekend!! :D

    True! I'll try to be patient. This is my first hatch with non-shipped eggs and I'm hand turning, so it hard not to peek when I'm in there anyway.

    [​IMG] I'll be anxious to watch.

    Did you see that cute little solid black silkie/cochin mix of mine? I bet it will be a sizzle.
    This girl that is taking them better keep in touch with me, so I can watch her grow them out first, then decide if I ever want to hatch any more of them... [​IMG]
