    How Wonderful!! [​IMG]

    My Buff Silkies hatched this week~two days early & I was so worried about it, but they did just fine. [​IMG] But some of the "later ones" needed some help. I am still trying to figure out if it was my temperature, humidity, or Both? Well, It's an adventure. [​IMG]

    Have fun! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that Chicks. I have sebrights due to hatch at the same time and boy do I have my fingers crossed. I've had bad luck with sebrights.

    Thanks, I now have two hatched and another pipped, [​IMG] They aren't actually due until after 8:00 tomorrow night, so there may still be some hope. I will be happy with what ever I get. My turner quit early on so I just left the eggs be inside the bator and just tilted the whole thing from outside, lol. the two that have hatched are F7's, must have been a good day.

    Hope you have a great hatch with yours.

    Chicks hatching early can be from the temp. being about a degree or two higher.than the 99 degree

    I'm just glad they are hatching!!!!!!! It really does't matter when as far as I'm concerned. So far one cute white frizzle with a few more pips.

    I am trying to hatch some eggs for the first time in my new homemade incubator, and boy am I excited! LOL [​IMG] I am on day 4 right now, and they are expected to hatch on Sept.20 or longer.
    Congrats on your hatch! I hope it all works well! [​IMG]
