    a surprise knobby-headed rough naveled peeping machine two days early!

    This one hatched out at 9:30 pm last night, Day 19:

    The rest of the eggs are either clear-from shipping disaster or looking very dead (all my SSH [​IMG] ) My temps went to 106.7 that one day for unknown amount of hours, and also some 104 degrees.

    There ARE rules, of course.

    1) It must be a girl

    2) I already have a silkie named Ashley...so, it will be called "Mary Kate", lol

    3) It must be a girl (a boy will feel identity issues with a name of 'Mary Kate'- plus I cant hide a roo)

    Quote:Nobuddy hatchling size- unless someone real near me has one they want to sell. However, plenty buddies (um, buddettes) once she grows a little bit.

    Once I take her out of the incubator, I will hook her up with a mirror and a stuffie.

    [​IMG] She died. For no apparent reason. She seemed to be doing fine, but when she ended up on her back, she was unable to flip over.

    I am sure that because she was born early, and she had a rough navel- bacteria or something must have taken over. However, she she seemed fine.

    What a crappy way to end my last hatch of the year. [​IMG]
