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
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!!

I don't touch the bator. Nope, not me..... Well, maybe I have once.... Ok, maybe a couple of times, but that's all really

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.

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
running around!

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
these just might be early.


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