    I set a batch on March 1 (afternoon), have 10 in the Turn-X incubator. I heard faint peeping yesterday, and last night saw one egg rocking slightly, but here it is day 21 and no pipping yet! I can't stand it!![​IMG]
    Of course, I have all kinds of running around to do today, and won't be home most of the day. Hopefully there will be something drying in the incubator when I get home.

    I've had some pretty unfortunate (non)hatches. I think I got everything right this time - no supplemental humidity until two days ago, temp has been rock-steady. I will be so upset if nothing hatches! (I told hubby if that happens, I'm buying a Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance to try to get something right.)

    gimmie birdies those are good lookin little chicks. That picture is just going to make these next few days drag out even more. I hope I get a good mix of colors like that but I'm afraid they may all be red since my EE roo is red as well.
