Ok, i wanted to tell our story. With a help of my friend i had a great opportunity to get my hands on my dream breed, silkies. And to be specific, american silkie bantam. I breed silkies here in Europe, FI and we only have UK standard birds here. Long story short, i ended up ordering dozen of silkie eggs from VA and they were shipped to my friend to FL. After that she flew to Amsterdam and finally to Finland. 5800 miles in total for the eggs. For my surprise all the eggs were in perfect condition and air cells looking fine. I let them rest for 24h and started bator 20 days ago. 11 of the 12 eggs were fertile and only 1 clear. About at day 10 there was 1 quitter so the total was 10 fertile and lively embryos!! Today we are on day 20 and i heard first peeps few hours ago, 10 eggs still alive and going strong. I think i have had extremely good luck so far, this is my dream come true. Or at least i hope it will be. I'm using Brinsea Octagon 20 ECO and have had great hatches with it. First 3 hatches 100% and after that 95%! I'll keep you posted. Chicks should hatch soon!
