    I love and hate the Home Stretch part; It reminds me of that saying, "Hurry up and wait!". I wasn't going to transfer them till tomorrow, but since I realized I actually put these in at just past noon the day before I counted as Day One, it would be fine to go ahead. As soon as we did, one of Skye's babies started shaking her egg big time. Here they are. Three on the left side are Velvet's, two in the middle are Skye's, lighter ones on top right are Caroline's and the two lowest on the right side are Lexie's. Now, we wait, watch, wait, watch, wait, watch..

    Me, too! These are the very first Blue Orp/Buff Brahma crosses I've hatched for myself.

    I've seen five of the nine rocking today, one quite alot. So much in fact, that I said, "Baby, do you know it's only Day 18?", LOL.

    Candled the rest of the 16 eggs today and all are growing just fine, so I won't candle again till they go in the hatcher. Well, I may candle #16 since it's a few days behind the rest of them. The first 15 are on Day 14 today, but #16 is on Day 9.
