    I just set 7 bearded buff silkie eggs in my brandy-new Brinsea Mini Advance. If I just get two to hatch, I'll be THRILLED!!!! I will use this thread to update. This is my second attempt at hatching....but hopefully my first actual hatch (0 of 6 the first try with an LG that I couldn't get temp & humidity to regulate with).

    Please keep your fingers crossed for me. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Oh, I'm right here, fingers crossed for you. You're gonna love that incubator!

    Why didn't"t you wait until noon tomorrow and join the Massive, Marhonri NY Hatch?

    I!m setting 8 Br eggs (shipped) and a dozen Trader Joe's fertile eggs (as an eggsperiment).

    Well, these eggs were shipped and took an extra day to get here. I was afraid to wait too long before setting them, so I let them rest for about 10 hours and then put them in.

    I hope I do love it!!! It seems like it should be much easier!

    yeah, last year i hatched 2 batches of silkie/showgirl eggs. i had very poor hatch rate....they were shipped and i only let them sit about 4 - 6 hours before i put them in. i'm gonna set some BCM eggs this coming week! i can't wait! i will let them settle for 24 hours this time. i hope ur hatching goes well! keep us posted throughout!

    Well, if they are a few hours late, then maybe they will be born at midnight!! Never know! I don't care when they hatch, as long as they do!!!! [​IMG]

    I candled on Day 7 and three of the seven are looking good. The others look clear...but I will give them until Day 14 before giving up on them. I'm praying the three that are developing well make it to the end!!! [​IMG]
