    My 12 SLW's were due 2 days ago. I gave them until tonight, because I figured the temp in the bator ran a little low for part of the time. So tonight I opened the very end of the air cell on one, and it was just a big fat yolk! This is the egg dh SWORE he saw rolling around yesterday. It must have been rolling from his big feet stomping across the room. [​IMG] So I opened the other 11 (just enough to see in), and there were 10 more yolks. The sole chick is back in the bator waiting to pip. With my luck it'll be a roo. [​IMG]

    The kicker is, I was at Rural King 2 weeks ago and they had SLW's in. I literally handed dh my purse so I wouldn't buy any, and now I only have 1 hatching. I could just kick myself. I'm almost tempted to call and see if they have any left.
