    Welp. Counting down the hours now. It's day 15 since putting my schofield silver collection from jmf in the incubator. Super excited for what's to come to the bay area with these. WISH ME LUCK :)

    Don't lose hope yet! I've heard of people having them hatch on day 18. If you're a curious/impatient person (like myself haha) Try picking up an egg, give it a VERY light tap, then hold it right up to your ear. By this stage you SHOULD be able to hear the chicks moving in the egg, or even a peep.

    So far there's 5 after day 18. There doesn't look like there's any other pips which concerns me. I'll remain optimistic and hope more to come tomorrow.
