    I set 46 Silkies on Jan 7 and after first candleing am down to 33. I think that is great though considering they were shipped eggs from the FL to MN.

    I set some on the 5th, with the 6th counting as day one since it was late afternoon. It's been an eventful hatch with a temp spike. I set 16 eggs: 4 silkies, 8 EE's blue/green, 4 EE's olive.

    This is my first hatch.

    set my 5 Pure Light Brahma, 3 Brahma/EE and 1 Brahma/NH on Jan 6th about 4 pm.....first candling didn't show much, incubator temp has been funny, so awaiting the day 14 recandle to decide how many get moved to the garbage.
