This thread is our main chat thread for the hatch-along where you can find anything from new friends, awesome incubation help, to the most detailed educational discussions possible, and how could we forget the laughter and fun!

This post of the hatch-along will be updated as we move along with all the important information you will need, but if you find yourself with a question, just post it on the thread, everyone is helpful!

If you end up not setting any eggs, please let us know! It makes it easier for our record keeping and we don't have to try to track you down!
