All has not been lost! 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. I even think the DH may be excited a little.
