    I got 24 shipped Buff Silkies in today. I had 2 eggs super cracked (the box was crushed on one side) that I threw out, two more cracked that I covered with nail polish, and a bunch with detached air cells. I put 8 under a broody white silkie I have, and the other 14 in my bator. Will see how it goes this time around. I put my very best looking eggs under the broody, cause I havn't been having good luck with my hovabator. It doesn't want to keep a stable temp.
    Anyone else setting tonight? would love a hatch buddy!

    I set 37 in an LG and 10 under a broody. 8 are my Lav orp eggs (my first grand kids as I hatched their mom and dad LOL) and the rest are a barnyard mix with Lav Orp rooster. I put the Lav Orp eggs in incubator as this is a first time broody and wasn't quite sure what she would do.
    Can't wait!

    Thanks! This is only the second time I've done this - hopefully it goes better than the first time.
