    All has not been lost! [​IMG][​IMG]

    As I was cleaning another delicious poo out from my setting Silkie's nest, I heard cheeping from inside one of the remaining 3 eggs! Hooray! I don't care if its only 1 chickie, all has not been in vain!

    The little biddy hasn't cracked the shell yet, so I'm assuming the wait is just beginning.[​IMG]

    I even think the DH may be excited a little.

    I thought buying my first chicks last year was the coolest thing I've ever done, but the excitement of hatching them is awesome!
