    Finally!! This is my third time trying to hatch silkie eggs!! I don't know what I did with the first 2, but I got nothing at all from them. One of the people sent me replacement eggs, and one little buff baby has hatched!! [​IMG]
    Plus there are 2 more pips so far!! One pip is from a white egg, and the other is another buff!! That buff had pipped last night, so it's taking it's sweet time [​IMG] They gotta make you suffer you know!!

    But YIPPEE!!! A buff!!! Finally!!! [​IMG]

    My zipper died!! [​IMG] And it was a white [​IMG] I candled the other eggs, cause there was nothing going on, and I'm not sure if any others are going to hatch! My flashlight is taking a dump on me, so it doesn't work very well. Looks like I have some really expensive silkie babies. [​IMG] Plus the little cuckoo only has 4 toes? Is this normal for cuckoos? I know they can have yellow skin, but 4 toes? That doesn't seem right? It has black skin btw.
