    Gonna have at least a dozen eggs going in on Sunday. So far I have 8 bearded splash Silkie, 3 of my EE's, and 1 brown leghorn mix. Hopefully my 3 laying EE's will add a few more by then. UPDATE: Five chics have hatched so far! All three EEs and two Silkies. Here's a couple pics of the Silkies (fourth try and finally got a couple to hatch!!!) One is a real light silver, the other just a little darker with some golden-brown mixed in. They are just so beautiful!!!! Thank you so much, sneakers!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, as of 5 pm yesterday, I have 13 eggs in my bator... 8 splash Silkies, 4 EEs, and 1 Brown Leghorn mix (3/4 BL, 1/4 Columbian Wyandotte). Hoping my other EE lays today, and I can add another of hers. Temp holding at an even 100, and humidity at 40-45.

    Quote:Oh good! I'm totally new to this, and I am in a mild panic because my best looking Blue Splash egg has a hairline crack in it! [​IMG] You can't see it unless you candle it, but I am wondering if I should keep it and try to fix it or if I should just pitch it.... Anyone have any advice?
