    The last batch of eggs didn't make it, we kept them several days and many of you were wishing us the best. Well, today was lockdown and I was about to lock them down when I opened the bator and to my surprise, a little silkie was sitting in the egg holder next to his egg shell in the turner OMG.. is exactly what I said. So I hurried and got them all out of the turner and placed them on the wire floor of the bator. There are at least 5 more peeping through. So excited and welcoming the little thing into the world.

    One more little baby has arrived and another hatching out as I type. Stormy weather is here and I hope the lights don't go out today. So happy for the little babies.

    Congrats on your hatch! I know the feeling, I just hatched my first chicks last week and have a continous supply of eggs being moved in and out of the turning bator into the lockdown bator. Now I wonder where I will house all these chicks when they aren't so little and cute.
