    today is day 18! i just candled and i saw good signs in all 8 eggs. I am 100% sure all will hatch. this is my first time incubating and these will be my first chickens! YAY!

    i saw in the eggs that the smaller end was dark, covering most of the egg, and the fat part ws clear, just a small part of the egg. i am soooooo excited! i can't wait till day 21!

    hey, i set my eggs at 9pm so does that mean they will hatch around 9pm on day 21? just wondering [​IMG] i candled them at 7pm tonight and took out the egg turner and increased the humidity to 70% to 75%. i did it at night b/c i set them at night. was that right?

    Counting chickens before they hatch is going to disappoint you at times.

    I hope all goes well. Good luck, Silkies are adorable, if evil.

    Go up to the blue bar across the top of the page and click on the word "upload". Then click the word browse and that should take you to your computer picture files.
