    What kind of eggs are you getting to hatch? I have welummers and partridge silkies and cuckoo silkes in my homemade bator I set yesterday. Then my ameraucana eggs from Cynthia are hatching now and my button quail are wiggling.

    They are silkies from Melanie. They just came today, perfectly packed! I'll let them sit over night to settle then set them tomorrow, I guess.

    I got silkies from Melanie, too. I wasn't going to get into silkies, but they are too cute! Karen
