    How are things going Melanie?
    We are on day 7 and my little hen is still doing a great job sitting on those eggs. Well at least I think she is doing a great job, first time for me so what do I know [​IMG]
    I must say that I am not quite as obsessive as when we hatch in the incubator. No desire to candle like crazy as I do not want to disturb her. Crossing my fingers. Hope all is well at your end too.
