    Thank you so much. He is already a lot better. It's just the timing that is so bad. Those eggs have been thru it all. If I get 1 to hatch it will be a miracle.
    Hope your husband is better soon.

    I'm going through the same thing. All the girls have come of age at the same time. Yesterday I found a different egg in the run every time I went out there. I never catch them in the act of course. And I don't have my breeding pens set up yet, So I have no idea which girl laid which egg. I have 20 hatching now and I'm so curious to see what colors I get!

    Good, I don't feel so bad :D I only have 3 girls in that pen though. Its going to be worse when all of my OEGBs are laying. Dummy me only wanted to hatch the silver duckwings, didn't even consider that all the girls eggs would look alike :he

    Ok, so I set my eggs 10pm Wednesday night. Last night at day 2 I layed the shipped silkie eggs down as the air cells I can see look firm. This morning when I turned (about 57 hours in) I decided to get a good look at the eggs, so I candled. 2 of the silkie eggs are advanced-like a full day's and my bator hasn't been running as overly warm as it usually is. My spitzhaubens -almost all are on track with the first signs of development- ("blood island" on the yolk.) Right on schedule. I don't see anything noticeable in the other 16 silkie eggs, but it's way early yet, so I am going to stay positive- (for a couple more days. [​IMG])

    Here's the one silkie egg I could get a decent pic of the growth:

    Nice Amy! Where did you get your Spitzhauben eggs? I can't find them anywhere.
