    I am not going to be on here very long but I am SO excited!!!!! I have a silkie egg from SundownWaterfowl pipping! And the little bugger is peeping up a storm. I am SO keeping my fingers crossed. So far no others are pipping but my temps were at 99/100 so maybe they were delayed just a bit. LOL, Halloween baby, a white one according to whats on the egg, any ideas what to name it if it hatches?
    I will be back on later. Send hatching vibes![​IMG]

    Well, the silkie is still in the egg but one of the EE/silkie cross eggs I got from KellyHM is zipped and out!! I think the peeping from the other egg encouraged him,lol,because that was FAST! I am leaving him in the hatcher for now because I dont want to open it while the hatch is going on, but what a precious baby!
    Going offline again but will be back on later tonight to update.

    Well, the silkie egg is being SLOW but two more of the silkie mixes I got from KellyHM are pipped and working their way out! I am keeping my fingers crossed on everyone else.
    Lots of peeping going on.[​IMG]
    Oh and I am brain dead, I cant see it real well from here but I think the silkie egg just says silkie on it. I dont know WHY I thought I saw a W???? See what happens when I quickly turn them 3 times a day, only candle a couple of times and now shine the flashlight in to see what progress is being made because I refuse to open the bator at least until sometime tomorrow????
    I didnt pay as much attention to the writing as I might have. My mistake.[​IMG]

    So far from the one hatch, five babies. One reddish blonde colored, one silvery blonde colored, one black/blonde, one grey/black and one black with a tophat.[​IMG]
    I have more silkie mix eggs due today so we will see what happens.
    Truth be told, this is the best I have done as far as eggs. Maybe all the practice.Sigh. Though I am sure I dont have it down to an exact science yet!
