    I know I'm being negative Nancy, I'm sorry, but I'm very devastated right now b/c I just had to cull 2 more of my precious eggs and when I say precious I mean it! I live in Guam, no one will ship me eggs, won't even try and it is LEGAL, just risky for the eggs!!! Anyhow, I got my hands on 8 Silkie eggs and I had a field day, they're my baby eggies; well 2 were infertile, okay I can handle that, then one late quitter not happy but ok, THEN TWO more!!! That leaves me 3 eggs in my bator and I'm just boiling b/c it was an ideal incubation with NO problems not even so much as a degree or two off!!! Why is this happening to me?!?!? I'm so sad [​IMG] and angry all in one; I have tried and tried and tried to get silkie eggs and I finally did and now this... You have no idea how hard it is to feel so isolated and to be able to only get one type of egg and to have to fight to get another and then you do and then it blows up in your face... I'm just going to go cry somewhere now [​IMG]

    So I guess I just want to know why I would have so many quitters with an ideal incubation period...

    BTW it's day 19 and it's just not looking good which is why I'm so sad [​IMG]

    I'm sorry too, but I expect the people on this post will be sending you some eggs. Cause these aren't your run of the mill folks. I don't have silkies or layers for that matter. I'm new but if I did you'd have some. Come on folks. Sure your not saving the world but you can help make a difference to one person can't you? Here's hoping.

    I am so sorry. It's nothing you've done, and after this is over I think you need to try again. But, this time put in twice as many eggs (if you can scam that many!). The worst that you will have with that is too many silkies, which would be easy for you to sell off if you need to.

    I know it's upsetting, but don't give up yet. You can do this.

    Hang in there, it sounds very frusterating but keep your head up and try again. I'd be happy to send you some eggs (cochins, mixes and seramas all bantam size) I can't guarentee they will make it to guam in tact but i could sure give it a shot for only the cost of shipping [​IMG]. Perhaps your thermometer could be a bit off? Try getting another and compare the difference that way [​IMG] We are all here for ya [​IMG]

    You can also order you some silkie or cochin chicks and let them incubate their own eggs... when they grow up, of course. [​IMG]
