    We have 5 in the warmer...due tomorrow! My daughter is so excited! I think my husband is too. I'm nervous! This is our first group. Two of the eggs have been rocking. Good signs! I just hope they hatch when my daughter is home from school. This is kind of her project.

    Everything is ready. Brooder ready and waiting![​IMG]

    Anyone else?

    Ok...eggs must be like the old saying "A watched pot never boils." Oh my...I keep looking and checking and every sound I hear I think it could be...but it's not. I thought waiting for my own kids to come out was going to drive me crazy.

    Anyone feeling my pain?[​IMG]

    I posted in the May 4th thread too! I am not sure when my babies are due! I know it has to be either the 4th or 5, possibly the 6th! But if they hatched on Cinco De Mayo, that would be so fun! They could all have Spanish names!!!

    When I found out that she was sitting, I candled that night and the babies looked at about 3-4 days, that would but their hatch date at May 5th!!!


    I will check ion to see how your hatch is going! That would be so fun for your daughter to be home when they hatch!!

    Still no sign of anything. My daughter got home from school, walked right past me, went inside and came back out crying. She is beside herself with excitment. I don't know what she'll do if she gets home tomorrow to nothing. I hope it will happen tonight...

    UUUUUGGGG! Waiting.


    Still Waiting.[​IMG]


    Still yawn. Goodnight all![​IMG]
