LOL, I check my calendar CONSTANTLY too! (Plus I have a notebook I write down hatch notes in!). When's it time to candle, when's lock down, when's hatch day, how old is this batch of stored eggs, when do I need to set the next batch of eggs on the counter so they can come to room temp the night before I'm gonna set them, when will these keets be ready to sell, who's coming to get keets or eggs today, etc etc etc... it's like OCD times 10! Just wait 'til you start hatching things that have different lock down dates (like Quail and Chickens) and you have 2-4 incubators and a hatcher going' non-stop like I do... it's bonkers!
27 new keets hatched so far the past 2 days... and I went and swapped out the 11 eggs under the broody Guinea Hen. She got right on the new warm 15 eggs no problem! I put the 11 eggs in the 1588 last night, since I wasn't sure if they were a day or 2 behind incubated eggs or not. And 1 of them was already pipped this morning (day 25), so I moved them to the hatcher a little while ago. My plan is gonna work out good... orders will be filled sooner than later. Yay!
I'm setting another big batch of Guinea eggs in a little while, I think this is batch #21? Ummm... didn't I say I was stopping at batch #10 a while back??? See, watch out Leigh, it's addicting!!! Viscous cycle, the only thing that stops me is the fact that the Guineas are seasonal layers, lol. I'm in big trouble when my Quail eventually start laying... I'll have the dang incubators and hatcher set up yr round. I have no willpower, I should be ashamed
