    today is day #21. at day #18 i did the last candling and i have 20 eggs in my bator (brinsea 20 octagon) which all looked great at that stage. 1/2 are silkies from one breeder, and 1/2 are frizzle Xs from another.

    i have 5 little silkie babies. [​IMG] one hatched yesterday morning, one last night and the other 3 overnight. this morning i found the last 3 had hatched overnight, but also found the humidity had dropped to 38%!!!

    some of the other 15 eggs had pipped, some had not yet. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me it's going to be ok. i'm a bit of a newbie and i'm soooooo worried!!!
