I know, you've seen that topic title at least a million times, right? You have no idea how happy I am right now! This is my second attempt to hatch eggs. My first was 56 eggs in a LG still air and not one hatched. This time I have 16+ eggs under my two broody Silkies. I say 16+ because I know 15 are bantam Cochins and one is an Ameraucana from my hen I got bought from Peachick. There are a few others in there that I did not put under them, but are the girls' own contribution (could be Silkie x Orp, Silkie Australorp or Silkie). Today is day 21 for my Ameraucana egg and day 20 for the rest. I had thought the hatch was doomed since the girls left the nest for 5-6hrs the one day and Vittles left Pearl with the whole nest and broke her brood for two days before she went back to sitting. There were to many eggs for Pearl to handle alone and a handful weren't covered for a few hours until I stacked them under her. So, this is actually my first hatch and hearing those peeps were the best thing I've heard since I got my first chicks back in March! Only a little while longer... I can't wait to see my new babies!
