Started with 9 silkie eggs from Tori (Mrs. Ak), I accidently broke one by dropping it...put the remaing 8 under Mama hen, and 7-8 days later had veining and chicks swimming in all 8!!

I candled on day 14, and one chick had expired. The remaining 7 still going strong!!

She also has 2 other bantam eggs under her from another OEG hen and both of those eggs are developing well, too!

My favorite egg is a little brown one from EmmyLou...soon as she hatches, I am naming her LouLou!! My favorite egg from Elvis is going to be named Tori! No matter what they turn out to be boys or girls, that will be their names LOL

for everything to continue to go well!

Mama got of the nest on her own today to eat and drink!

You're almost there! It is so exciting, isn't it....just wait til you see that first pip! It's amazing....makes you just want to sit and watch the egg all day!
Good luck! Hope you have a great hatch!

You may start hearing peeping on Saturday or Sunday... resist the urge to check on the eggs unless you see that momma's being bad. I will usually check once on day 21, then just leave her alone. I can't wait to see your new babies!!

I can't wait to see them either! Little Miss Smarty pants figured out how to move her food dish closer to the brooder area, she doesn't move off the nest to eat now, just puts her head around the corner and grabs bits
Runs off 1-2 times to get a drink, poo, then back on the nest. When I peeked in today to give fresh food & water I laughed outloud when I saw how she set herself up to eat without getting up LOL
