    Hi, these were actually a present from my BF, I won an auction and he paid for them. What a guy.[​IMG] He is very tolerant of my hobbies.
    Anyway, these eggs came from Michigan, they are a mix of partridge,buff, black, white, splash and I THINK blue. He was kind enough to pencil the color on each egg.
    There were supposed to be 12 but he sent me 18! I am SO glad I got that other incubator. I am going to use it as a hatcher as I have a few Dutch Banty and mixed layer eggs as well at this point. I am candling the Dutch after the weekend, the layers the week after.(I posted I only have three of those right now because of a post office mishap.[​IMG])
    This is an addiction but I cant think of a better one.[​IMG]
    Fingers crossed that some hatch.[​IMG]

    Thank you. Between this and another silkie order my daughter should have enough to pick from for 4H.[​IMG] This is the breed she especially wanted us to have so I hope it at least somewhat goes well.

    I hope it goes well for you. I have been having bad luck with my first 2 batches of Silkie eggs.

    Well, I have these and also have a smaller group of silkie eggs coming. If we can get something out of all that, it would be great, otherwise we will just have to keep trying!
