I cannot begin to explain how excited or happy or totally ecstatic that I am right now!!

My first time ever to get shipped hatching eggs, all the way from Alaska to Ohio!! I stuck them under a broody hen, and she is doing such a good job......

AND THEY ARE ALL DEVELOPING!!



I have prayed and prayed and prayed for those eggies as they were too long in transit (post offices fault!) and I was afraid they would be toast by the time they got to me.

Tori packed those babies so well! She had sent me 9, I accidently broke one, but the remaining 8 are ALL developing!!



She actually has 10 eggs under her, one might be her own, but I am not sure. The other one I know is an OEG mix, the other 8 silkies!!

The first chick to hatch (of the Silkies I mean) will be named Tori and the first chick to hatch from Emmy Lou's eggs will be named Lou!!

I had candled on day 6, and only saw veining in one. I almost tossed the others, thinking they weren't developing. I am so glad I didn't and decided to wait! Tori helped me though, she explained that sometimes silkies don't show veining until day 8 and today is day 8!!

I don't think I will candle on day 14...I don't want to risk harming them since they are with a broody! We will just have to see when day 14 gets here I guess...LOLOL

Well, they haven't hatched yet...
But that sure is a very nice start!


I hope Melissa's do the same!

I have dark brown hair, but I seriously think I should have been blonde (no offense to blondes here!) It took me several minutes to recognize that the black dots I saw were CHICKS! LOL then I saw the veins and I was like OMG DUH!!!


2 more weeks,
and counting!!
