    Thanks! I'm so excited!

    [​IMG] Jody I think one of them is from you!! I can't wait, I have 9 of your buff silkies that have made it this far. And I think that is great considering I have never done this before!
     
  4. Yaay! If you could hear them cheep, then they have 'internally pipped' (into the air cell) and should be about to externally pip.

    What an exciting time!! Congratulations!!

    Merry Christmas!

    Oh my, that is early. Well, they may take another day or so to come out, so patience..patience. Whatever you do, don't open the bator. Good luck with your hatch! Come on silkies! [​IMG]

    Thanks! My daughter just called and said one is out!! I could hear him peeping. I'm so egggggcited! I told her NOT to touch the bator no matter what! She helped our Jack Russel have her first set of pups so she thinks she's a pro now. But she is good!!

    That first one out is always exciting. I can't wait for my Jan 3 and Jan 6 hatches!
