I've made to lunch time, but am still awfully jittery...
I would have if I could have (or have taken personal time) - no way, too many "must be here" things going on. I will do the backwards calendar math better next time so I can have my hatches over weekends...
Oh, I don't want to DO anything, and don't think I CAN do anything. I just want to BE THERE!!!!!! (Nose pressed up against the lid and everything). Maybe I could sing to them? (I'm clearly really losing it at this point...)
We are supposed to hit the 80's today, but the wind is horrible. Even worse then yesterday. We are losing branches from our VERY tall trees. We are getting more of the 60 MPH gusts than the 25 to 40 MPH winds....
I will take these winds over the snow that others are getting.
Stay safe, warm and dry everyone!!
High winds here in the San Antonio area as well today. I tried to pick up any "blowables" this morning before work - it really freaks the chickens out when a big empty bedding bag comes flying at them (as you might imagine).
So nerve wracking! And these were supposed to be the EASY ones! (My own eggs). Hatch of the Horrible Air Cells (shipped eggs) is 9 days behind.
Are those marks the air cells? You're giving me hope - a few of mine looked like that with no draw down... Part of why I'm being a bit of a freakazoid right now...
Let him rest and keep it quiet around him (no loud noises). Hopefully he will bounce back if he's eating and drinking. I was stunned at how quickly Dumbledore got better after seeming catatonic after the dog attack.
Folks are squeamish about eating fertile eggs?! All my eggs are fertile - heck, I'd have nothing to eat!!!!!!
(They're yummy, too!)
Just 5 more hours, and I can head home.... I need to get a IncubatorCam.
