    And I can't wait. I bet the old hen doesn't stress as much as I have these last 17 days over these eggs. I'm going to have to use 3 sponges I think to get the humidity up but at least I've figured out what's needed. With three I can get it up to 61 %. We are on day 17. One more turning of the eggs tonight and then we play wait and see. Started with 15 down to 12 right now. Culled two. One never developed the other stopped very early on. Might be 2 more but not sure. But from candling diffently have movement in at 9 of them. I would love to see all nine hatch but am going to be tickled pick with half. Going to be a very exciting weekend here I hope. Fingers crossed for us everyone. [​IMG]
