    Ok, so I am not just a hatch-a-holic. As you may have notice in my avatar, we have other critters as well. Since I just can't wait for my broody chicks to hatch next weekend, we added two new members to our family.

    They aren't chickens but they are cute anyway!

    I...I need that shirt. Where on earth did you get it?

    In other notes, 7 day candle happens tonight! I've discovered none of the store eggs were fertile. Not a big surprise, little dissapointing, but it freed up room in the incubator, so I'm not playing airsack jenga anymore xD Most of the rest seem to be developing. Tonight's the night I pull them all out and check! Woohoo!

    I've got 7 blue/splash silkies and 6 buff rocks in the incubator. Today is day 11 and all are looking good and lively! This is my first batch in my new Incuview, so here's hoping for a successful one! [​IMG]

    Well, I guess May is just about here... Time to switch threads. :)

    I set a few more Silkie eggs today and candled a couple that I set a few days ago and they are fertile!! So two hens are now laying fertile eggs. I am so excited because I have a paint roo and a black, split lavender, showgirl roo over black and showgirl hens, so I am just dying to see what hatches. Presumably some lavender, black, showgirl and possibly paint chicks and who knows what else??? So fun!
