Anyone else hatching for the first time and hovering over their incubator 24/7? I check the temp about 40 times a day and can't resist the desire to candle them when it gets dark and see how they all are doing. I'm especially excited and nervous since I lost 8 of my 13 chicks this morning to an unknown illness or maybe the heat. I hope they make it. I have 40 mutt eggs 6 of which are bantams (I've never had them before). I think one died, but after opening an egg I thought was dead and finding a live chick in it, I'm not going to take it out until I'm sure. Anyway, I just wanted to see if there are any other new hatchers out there like me.
