Lockdown and Hatching 

Last time I posted, I’d just candled the chicken eggs on day 4. It’s now day 20. We had one clear and two red rings of death, so only 4 eggs went into lockdown. Today our first egg started to hatch, a gold top (silkie x light Sussex) bantam.

The wait is excruciating, but with any luck we’ll have a chick by the morning!
