    [​IMG] I can't believe I have a job today. I have 4 pips and it's my very first hatch using my own eggs. I want to sit and watch. That's what Hatchaholics do! That's what we are supposed to do! DH doesn't understand, he keeps telling me that they will hatch without me. The rules of the hatchaholic say that isn't true [​IMG] We are supposed to sit there and watch all day and night like zombies forgetting everything around us. I'm very good at this. I need to be home doing my chicken mom job!! [​IMG]

    Look at it like this, if you are working you will be less tempted to touch the bator...... [​IMG]

    [​IMG]I agree! Hands off until the chick is at LEAST zipped! Let it muscle its way into the big world...then you can mommy it and love it all you want.[​IMG]

    The same thing happened to me! I kept calling home to have my DH give me a play-by-play! It is nice to come home to a bunch of fluffy butts [​IMG] running around! [​IMG]

    Got home to 3 cute fluffy butts. Another is half way zipped. No more pips yet, but since I can't remember exactly what day I put them in [​IMG] these just might be early. [​IMG]

    These were nice clean hatches though. That's a really good thing. I've had issues in the past with sticky gooy hatches.
