    No one outside the chicken incubating world would understand, but what is it that makes us sit & watch the eggs waiting for the slightest movement? I go check every little bit to see if any new ones are moving around.....walking up so carefully so that I know the movement wasn't made by me hitting the table. LOL LOVE watching the miracle of a chick hatching from the egg

    DH just puts the eggs in & pretty much forgets about them. I am constantly looking in the window watching for movement & watching temps / humidity. I just can't stand NOT to do it!! [​IMG]
