    Thanks guys! They are cute!

    There are still 6 eggs that are fertile but so far have not hatched or is it called "peep" the shell - when they start to hatch and crack the shell LOL. I hope they do. How long do I give them, Monday sound good?

    It's called "pipped," when they make their first air hole thru the shell. Zipped when they have pecked completely around the shell and hopefully will "break out " soon.

    Had no idea silkies were born so feathered - neat!!
