    Does anyone else have chicks due to hatch next weekend? I set my seven silkies on the 23rd and they are due to hatch on the 13th. I just finished candling them for the 3rd time and they are huge and moving everywhere. This has been my best candling on shipped eggs ever. I purchased them from Silkie horsechick and they were packaged extremely well and have been very fertile and full of potential. I am starting to get very excited and will candle on Thursday and start lockdown!!!! Wohoo!!! who is with me?

    I would love to hear how your hatches go especially the one on the 9th as it may keep me from putting my hands in the incubator after lockdown!!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Quote:I have 3 pips so far. I will be putting another two trays in the incubator, one tomorrow most likely and one on Tuesday. I may wait and put them both in on Tuesday then that will give me a hatch date of Nov. 29th too.
