    My eggs are just a few days behind yours. I expect mine to start hatching in about 3 days. I have 12 marans eggs in the incubator, but haven't been able to candle them very well due to the fact that they are such dark eggs.

    Congrats on your hatch, and wish me luck with mine!

    I agree... I am starting another group of eggs on the 10th after a business trip I am taking that week for a new years day hatch. I wish there was someone around me that I could trade some eggs with but haven't found anyone yet... I need to mix up my silkie genetics.
