    Just remember, it could take over 24 hours for them to hatch. I think is time seems like the longest time. But if your like me you will be crying when they hatch.

    By the way [​IMG]

    Good luck [​IMG] Being at home watching the eggs is torture because it seems to go soooooooooooooooooooooooo slow.

    there are 7 now...you all are right it is taking so long. Kinda like watching water boil i think, as long as your looking it wont boil, but as soon as you turn away its done.
    Im praying everyone hatches healthy.[​IMG]

    I'm so glad for you. Did you ever say how many eggs you are hatching? How many are out now?

    Quote:oh sorry, i didn't. 24 eggs is what we started with. it is noon on the 22nd day and we have 15 chicks. Im not giving up yet, hoping there are some late bloomers. And if not, 15 is good for a first time ever hatcher.

    Have a good day [​IMG]
