    A lady who breeds pure silkies collected eggs for me for seven days, she only found 3 in those days and offered them to me for a small bag of scratch! I thought it was great! However today was day 4 so I candeled to check for development, they all had bad cracks and one of them had a bacteria ring and another smelled awful... [​IMG] I'm livid, I had to cull all three and I drove an hour and half to get them; hopefully she is willging to work something out with me... [​IMG]

    Sorry they had cracks in them and the dreaded bloodring of all things. An hour for 3 eggs, you must realy want those silkies. Maybe we can find you a member who is closer to your area who can help you out with some hatching eggs.
