    I had 2 eggs from my 2nd kiki shipment that went on to develope. I also put in an egg from my key west roo to check on his fertility. Today is day 19 and I have a pip in Smokey's egg! My last kiki egg that piped a week ago died before it was out. So hopefully the 2 kiki eggs will pip tomorrow! I have no doubt Smokey's egg will zip, they are very hardy chickens. My humidity is 66% and my temp is 99.6.

    A kiki is kinda a made up name for a bantam that was used to make key west chickens so small. Sorry, no pics, don't have any at the moment. But it looks like a tiny game chicken.The one that is piping now is my key west chicken. I hoping it will finish before I go to bed. I'm naming this one "giblet" in honer of Thanksgiving!
