    There are two options here. [​IMG] You can either tie your hands behind your back and move slowly away from the bator, OR you can take a hammer to them and tell them it is time!!!! I recommend choice 1 although 2 is always a HUGE temptation. LOL It will be here before you know it. [​IMG] Congrats on a good candling. [​IMG]

    21 days seen like 21 years doesn't it? Wait till you want them to start laying eggs. Now that takes forever. [​IMG] [​IMG]
