    I'm anxious if my little silkies will hatch can no longer see any movement idk if it's due to the reason they are fully grown and ready to hatch? or because they died but here are some pictures for the experts to help me out I could see little veins. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd say the best forum to ask is either the Hatch-a-long forum (one was started yesterday, I believe) or the Incubating and hatching eggs forum. My experience in hatching with an incubator is zilch, but I'm sure the peeps there will be able to help you out.

    Good luck

    I've never incubated eggs either. There are egg candling charts on BYC that show what it looks like inside at different days. Put "egg candling," chart in the searchbox and it should come up.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Many eggs will become very still before they hatch. If they have veins they're still alive. Leave them be.

    Greetings from Kansas, faith, and :welcome. Pleased to have you aboard. As an incubating and hatching novice I have nothing to offer so I will defer to the experts in the field. I do however wish you all the best in your hatching success. :jumpy
