    I purchased 7 sultan eggs on Ebay. Finding SQ White Sultan Bantam eggs that are not very expensive is like finding bananas at a shoe store. Ok, that was dumb. I REALLY need these eggs. They are supposed to hatch on Friday, but I will not be home all day. I am scared that they are not fertile, or will all die, or something. [​IMG]

    Have you candled at all? That would be the thing to do to see if there is anything growing.

    If they are going to hatch, they will do it whether you are home or not. If they are not going to hatch, they will not do it if you are home or not. No need to worry, this is not a time to intervene, anyway. You will just be pleasently surprised to come home to cheep cheep cheep [​IMG]
