Well I got my shipped eggs last friday and they are actually due on the 7th of January. I know for sure that I have 5 silkie eggs that are fertile because I can see veins and the embryo. I am not sure about the orpington eggs or 6 of the silkie eggs I have to candle them to night and check again, and them wait until lock down to check again. I am so excited to have silkies. At first I wasn't but my daughter is 5 years old and the orpingtons are for my 7 year old son and for him to take to 4-H in the spring. My daughter is going to 4- H and the silkies will be smaller so they will be easier for her to handle and my son wasn't interested in them at all.
