    Oh, the cooling part I'm not worried about. When Aggie was brooding she'd leave the nest periodically so I don't worry too much about that aspect of it... I'll buck up and do this even if it makes me a nervous wreck! Boy, more to this incubating stuff than I figured. Glad it safe here in my blankie fort. [​IMG]

    Too bad you can't make hens go broody when you want them to...

    AHEM....AHEM....YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE..... I just finished candling all of the eggs. (Yes, I did all of them instead of a random few) And I am very proud to announce that - I didn't break a single one! <taking a bow>

    I still have 6 with obviously moving around air cells. I saw clear spidering in 8. In many of them I saw a big dark blob in the upper half of the egg, like 1/4 to half the shell was solid dark. Dunno what that means. But we'll do it again on the 10th day.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast.

    Now I don't wanna leave them, ever. The lil brown ones are very special, because they are chicks from the one and only Jace- my super tame OEGB. I just love these gals! :love
