    it is still Day 17!!! So, why can't I quit looking?? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I put the two little seramas in a part of an egg carton (I cut out a piece that holds four eggs, and I used two kitty-corner from each other)....candled them as they went in- still alive and kicking (okay, fine, I peeped at them too)...
    I hate waiting! I am too impatient to hatch eggs. AND, I just now figured out that Day 19- hatch day for the Seramas, I have to work all day!!! [​IMG] I have instructed my daughter to peek in at 4 when she gets home, but DO NOT open the incubator. I will make my husband be on chick-duty too...but I wanted to watch them hatch (of course, [​IMG] still hoping they hatch).

    Anyhow, I just had to [​IMG] [​IMG] somewhere where people understand how hard it is to wait!

    Edited to say:

    Its DAY 19 today!!!!!!!!!!! Um, *peeking into the incubator*, I just told the little Serama eggs that. I don't think they know. I am getting ready for work...wonder if they will hatch while I am gone. I just discovered that all three hatch dates I have are for Mondays, where I will be working all day. nice. :eek:

    The waiting is hard. I understand your frustration at the minutes ticking away sooooo slowly.

    BTW, my eggs are on day 10 and I stood at the incubator and peeped at them today! [​IMG]

    *sigh [​IMG] Day 19 serama eggs: 2
    serama chicks: 0

    No pipping, no wiggling, no peeping..nothing. I am not very patient, but now I am just bummed. Okay, bummed and stressed.

    I will give them more days- but Serama are supposed to hatch NOW, day 19...not 21. Frustrating eggs...maybe they didnt read the book and will be late.

    I have other breeds on Day 14 and Day 7. (and others coming in the mail...heh addiction here.)

    In the mean time..[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
