    Starting my hatch today, it's so hard to concentrate on work when you chickies right next to you coming out of their shells! 2 out, several pipped. [​IMG]

    I have my incubator right by my desk. I am hovering and I am only on day 7. [​IMG] I think I get worse with every hatch. But it is sooooo much fun!
