    I am so excited, the eggs I ordered are here and I can begin incubating soon!!!

    They're so cute because they are so small compared to regular eggs. I am beyond thrilled. Am I crazy?? I took pics of unpacking and of the eggs resting on the counter before I put them into the bator. And I took a comparison shot of the eggs to a standard egg.

    I am just so stinkin excited.

    I just bought some from a member here and she has been great about trying to get a variety of eggs from each of her pens.
    I cannnot wait to see what she sends and hatch those little cuties, I love my silkies.
    unfortunately it looks like I have a pen full of roos, I will wait a little longer but its sure is looking that way, hoping to get some ladies for them.

    I'm doing silkies next after my cochins hatch next week. I'm trying to wait till these chicks get to be 6 weeks before I get the silkie eggs. At lease I keep telling myself I have to wait. But silkies are so darn cute.
