    So far no signs of hatching but today is suppose to be the day but my test egg didn't start until the afternoon. But so far I've learned watching for signs of hatching is torture.

    It really is torture!! Try to keep your self busy with chores. I do that and then when I have done the chore the reward is a look at the incubator!! Untill I just can't stop looking and have to get a chair and cushion to sit in and watch!! I know perfectly well that me watching is not going to make them hatch any faster.

    Good luck

    I think my chicks might be shy. Still no action. Really hoping they come out soon. 2 eggs are pointy and some say that means rooster. I really hope so.
