    There are at least 4 of the silkie eggs pipping now. I really thought they were due to hatch on sunday. I picked up the one that is furthest along and I can hear the baby scratching and tapping away. The membranes looked kinda dry to me so I bumped up the humidity a little.

    Has anyone ever duct taped their hand to keep them from opening the bator the last 3 days? I think I may have to. It's so hard!

    My best solution to keeping from opening it is to leave the house!!! [​IMG]
