    Good luck!

    I'm only on day 3...still a long wait ahead.

    I see you're in Lewisville -- I'm nearby! We should stay in touch.

    Also, I have a couple of splash and blue/blue cuckoo maran chicks (about 2 weeks old) that may be needing homes soon if you know anyone interested.

    I have 22 going in lock down tomorrow. I have 2 oegb's a couple silkie and the rest are sizzles. All are from my birds. I candled today and took out 1 quitter which left 22 to go in the hatcher tomorrow.

    The sizzles are from the new calico roo I bought a few months ago that I put with my sizzles. So i'll finally get to see what he produces. He's with 3 white sizzle hens that have a few black spots on them.

    I have 2 pips. One from a sizzle and one from a silkie. I'm anxious to see how the sizzles feather out. I may have to feed Miracle Grow so they hurry up. But first they have to hatch. [​IMG]:jumpy:jumpy

    (Just kidding on the miracle grow)

    They're due to hatch tomorrow. Well, I guess it is tomorrow already. I sure hope I don't have to wait days for them to hatch. Thats what usually happens. Strange I think. I put them in the bator at the same time, same day, then in the hatcher same day, same time. Yet they take days to hatch. Drives me insane. [​IMG]

    I also have 2 oegb's in there too. One came from our hen and the other from same color hen at the auction.
