    I plan to set between 5-7 chicken eggs tomorrow. Just need to get a few things then in the eggs go. My breeds are 2-3 silkie eggs, and then a mix of barred rock x sussex, black sex link, some sort of red. Barred rocks are my males. I am very exited and hope all goes well! Good luck to the two of you to!

    Sure will, lots of pics :) But for now I'm crossing my fingers I even get the eggs. I just checked tracting again and their sitting in St. Paul again for some dang reason. I am going to call in the morning if they still havent departed. I'm hoping the tracking just isnt updated right now, and that my eggs are fine.

    My silkies are not friendly. Hopefully if one of the two eggs I set hatch they will be friendlier. My mom convinced me to put in the eggs tonight so five eggs from my other hens and 2 silkie eggs. I have the temp about 100 f and I don't know the humidity I just went with the directions and filled 2 of the channels in the bottom. Will candle Friday night or Saturday. So exited!

    Your eggs aren't to far away. I hope they reach you soon and in good shape!
