    A Watched Hatch never Pips! LOL![​IMG] Does anyone ever get used to waiting for hatches! 3 weeks fly by otherwise, unless I have a hatch! This is probably my 10th[​IMG] hatch and I am still excited and impatient!

    Yup.. i do.. for me it's just another day (course I've been doing this for over 50 years now)

    even when they start pipping I have no problems going to sleep and just seeing who has popped out the next morning..

    lol.. there have been a lot of times where I walk past an incubator and hear chirping and forgot they were due to hatch!

    I am glad I am hatching out at the end of a 3 day weekend, it makes the weekend go slower.
