    Well on a good note, it looks like I will have another great hatch from the eggs that I got from Dipsy! They're due on the 21st and every one that I candled tonight had a chickie inside. On a sad not though the ones from Jen at Sassy Silkies of 17 eggs I can only see really well defined growth in 2 of the eggs [​IMG] I'm so upset I really was looking forward to having a herd of Sassy Silkies but I left the others that were questionable in the bator and maybe we will have a christmas miracle! Also the eggs that survived from ksacres are on day 18 tomorrow so [​IMG] we will have a great hatch with those little ones!

    I hope the questionable ones are fertile. Please keep us updated on those
     
  3. Hi Alyssa!
    That's great to hear! Weren't those the ones that got hung up in the mail a few extra days? I'm so glad they are growing for you.

    Happy Holidays!

    Still nothing from the first batch, tonight at 6 is the start of day 21 and nothing [​IMG] . The ones from Lisa and Jen start day 18 tomorrow at 6. Hopefully things go better with that batch [​IMG]

    [​IMG] sorry to hear that. I know it sucks. But, just wait a few days and you'll have cute little Dipsy doodle do chicks.

    unfortunately nothing, I think that when the other eggs broke they might have put extra bacteria into these remaining eggs [​IMG] I'm going to let them stay a few more days just in case but... it doesn't look to good right now

    No peeping or anything?? Did you try the tap test? What day is this for them? I do know that incubator cleanliness is very important, but I hope you at least get one or two!
