My first hatch... I have read from other posts on this site that sometimes in incubators the temperature is too low and the hatching can take up to 25 days. How about when silkies are sitting on the eggs???? My two girls have been sitting soooo tight on some buff orbington eggs for almost 22 days now... One of them I have never even seen getting off the eggs at all!!! I candled a few of the eggs yesterday and while I couldn't make out any shapes the eggs are most definitely not see through like the unfertilized egg I compared them with. Light only went through where I'd expect the air bubble to be at. So I'm assuming I have live ones. I hope! I'm in Dallas and it has been a little cooler for the past few days... In the 50's during the night. Could this delay the hatching??? Thanks!
