    Today while putting my Silver lakenvelders in Lockdown (it was supposed to be yesterday then someone told me the first day is day 0...) i heard one peep and it had a small crack around the pointy tip (the air sac). I think this might be from when it internally pipped, and I think it wiggled (it's in a new position now). How long until I can expect fuzzy butts if they peep on day 18. I heard day 18.5 is better, and that would have been at like 5 in the morning, so I did it at 7. I think these little buggers might be out by day 19 or 20 (tonight or tomorrow). SO EXCITED!!! anyone else got news to share?

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Congratulations [​IMG] The waiting is hard but once they start to pip it really gets hard [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Then I find myself staring at them intently for hours [​IMG] It can sure take awhile! I have a few silkie eggs due to hatch tomorrow that are starting to wiggle! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I did my lockdown last night and could see some of the eggs rocking around a little after laying them flat..That was pretty cool! This is my first hatch, and so far, so good!
