    Well I started out with 15 eggs and am now down to JUST ONE! All my silkies died [​IMG] and I have one silver laced polish that is still alive. Due to hatch in three days. SO it being a lone baby I am looking for another chick to go with him/her so its not so lonely. I am waiting on a phone call from a park who sells chicks...this week is suppose to be silkie chicks which is what I am looking for. Wish me luck!

    I feel your pain. I recently had a hatch that didn't yeild any babies. I am sending good hatching vibes your way for at least for the last little egg.

    Awwwww. That is sad. I keep hearing that Eric Carmen song....You know, the one Bridget Jones sang to in her undies.

    Good luck with your baby.

    I have silkie bantams in the bator. If I had eggs from them (impossible since they are on day one [​IMG] ) I would send you some. I hope little miracle egg makes it out safely.

    Oldtimegator...I think what happened was I ordered in the hot part of the month [​IMG] I should have waited but I have no patience. My hatches have never been this poor. I just pray this little one makes it. I will candle tonight to see if IT is alive. It was a live three days ago so we will see. I tried candling it today but it was too light out. LOOKED like it may have already been in the air sac tho but can't be sure.
