I moved Penny and her nest of golf balls into an isolation pen just now. DH carried the basket of what we hope are her fertile eggs. She pecked me as I removed the golf balls. There was only room for four of them under the little Serama bantam. I was able to place her freshest 5 eggs under her just barely. I checked the oldest one that wouldn't fit using the water test, and it floated! It was laid March 2, so I was surprised it was already bad. I hope the next freshest one laid on the 4th is OK. I read I shouldn't candle them until day 10 (halfway through), but do you think I would see something in about 4 days? I know when you folks who use an incubator check, you check on the 3rd or 4th day, right? I don't want to risk having a bad one explode. Anyway, I'm so JOYFUL that she wasn't roosting this evening and she stayed in the nest while I exchanged her eggs for golf balls! Hopefully we will hatch some silkie Serama chicks early April!
