What I started with:
1 Leghorn
2 Silver-laced Wyandottes
7 Sizzle Silkies
Total: 10

Current:
5 Sizzle Silkies
Total: ... 5

Ended up having to toss all but 5 of the SS eggs, who are in lockdown! I started humidity raising last night since my basement is notorious for stopping that. Woke up this morning at 51%, super glad I started early.

Steady at 69% now!

My bf and I are taking bets on how many are going to hatch.

I say 2, he says 5.

That's what he said too, before I told him there's only 5 eggs left.

Only infertile/clear was the leghorn one. 2 Silkie eggs ended up dead because of the shipping (busted egg yolk and aircell), though I'm unsure why the wyandottes were quitters.

Slightly disappointed at no pips, peeps, or even taps yet.

But could be just wanting the chicks to hatch, since it's only day 19~~

Thank you! Hope you have a good hatch as well.

I know that eggs are supposed to start hatching on day 21, but so many stories of them hatching before that makes me wanna go "Come outttt!"
