    I have 2 dozen eggs in my octagon brinsea from Bobbi Porto's silkies! So exciting! Anyways...... I candled and I have about 8 that look good. I just made little cups(instead of egg cartons) for them to go in during lockdown. I will go into lockdown on Tuesday afternoon probably. Their hatch date is Friday!!!!!! I am being toooooo impatient! Anyone else's hatch day is Friday?? Will update everyday this week to let you guys know the progress. If I get 5 I will be happy.

    I have a turkey sitting on 6 eggs that are due on Wednesday. I am cautiously optimistic as her eggs we fostered under a broody earlier this year hatched and then died 24 hrs later. Hopefully she has better luck! Good luck with your hatch!!!
