    Have a few white silkies, a few Mille Fluer d'Uccles and a few seramas from sherriekim. Those serama eggs are the cutest, so tiny. My dh saw them in the bator with the other eggs and said, oh, they are not as small as I thought they would be from your description. I said, well, you have to remember that they are in with bantam eggs too. Next to a regular sized egg, they would be small. i have button quail coming next week and I wont be able to put them in the turner, it is full anyway, and they would not fit. So I will be hand turning them I guess. Anyway, I am a total addict. I have to start selling some chickens soon.

    Update, today is day 7 on these eggs and I have had some shaky air cells and not as much progress as I would have liked but some are still going. Had to take out one silkie and 3 of the 5 serama. Not doing well, the insides were just mush. I think the p.o. must have shaken them pretty good. I don't know. Will wait on the rest a while longer. Will update later.
