    I am getting 2 dozen Silkie eggs from Bamachicken. The should be here in a few days. This is my first time getting eggs in the mail so it will be a new experience. I don't know whats worse the last 3 days waiting for them to hatch or waiting for the mailman to bring the eggs. I got the bator out last night and got it going temp holding at 99.5 and humidity staying between 45 and 50. I can't wait. I've done this many times and it's still allways exciting, fun and nerve wracking. I'll keep yah posted. My broody hen should have babies for me next week. I'll post pics.
