    I have:

    20 Buff Silkies from hinkjc
    24 Assorted Silkies/possible Showgirls from Kentuckysilkies
    the rest of my 24 from Dipsy on the way.

    I set hinkjc's eggs on 1-02-08

    I will set Kentuckysilkies' eggs today 1-04-08

    I will set Dipsy's eggs when I get them prob 1-07-08

    I have three different incubators and will split the eggs between two of them and use the third as a hatcher, hopefully increasing my chances of a hatch!

    If I don't hatch anything out of all these eggs, I'm done with shipped eggs, absolutely DONE! I have spent over $200 on eggs in the last six months and have not one little chicky to show for it.

  2. Hi Kelli! I've got my fingers crossed for you!
    You should get this next group on Mon, for sure!
    Since none of the first group hatched, I sent 2 doz.
    Hehehe, you might even get some frizzled Naked Necks.

    Good luck!

    I will keep my fingers crossed for you too!
    I have 23 jody eggs and 18 scott eggs and they were both shipped. I am hoping very much for somthing, but this is my first attempt at shipped eggs, last time I just got eggs from random people and I had about a 50% hatch rate, but did have chickies.

    So my fingers are crossed for you and for me!

    Mine are due on the 19! When are yours??

    Rubbing "some" of my good hatching luck on you. I got the rest saved for this year. After I am done I will pass it on to the rest of you. But yall have to share

    Out of the 3 shipped egg batches I got I only had 0% on my first hatch, Then my second was 50%, then my 3rd was 95%

    Mine are due the 23rd, the 25/26 Dipsy eggs should go in the bator next Mon, so that would make them the 28th.

    Quote:Ok, I'm taking your good luck right now. IF I get some to hatch I'll pass it on to someone else-wouldn't want to pass on faulty luck, now would I? [​IMG]

    My Jody eggs are hatching now. I even had one eggs broken in transit. Right now 15 out of 21 eggs were developing on day 18 and of those 7 have hatched, 2 have definitely died and the rest are wait and see.

    Good Luck, hopefully this time is the charm.
