    I have 13 silkie eggs in the hatcher. Today is suppose to be day 20..I THINK!![​IMG] Now I am starting to really wonder if I can count. I have blank calandars that I will write the days of the week in and then mark when I set eggs and day 18 and hatch day or what ever type of eggs I am hatching. Today is suppose to be 20 but I already have 3 hatched, 2 mostly zipped and I think 4 or 5 pipps. I even have a book that I keep for records to see how my hatch rates will be this year. Oh well, I guess I have eager little silkies!!! Showgirls are sceduled to hatch this Friday, maybe they will come early too. Jenn

    If the temperatures are off, it will cause the eggs to hatch early (or late). Plus, Bantams have a tendency to hatch on day 20, anyway.
