    Slowly step away from the incubator and no one will get hurt! [​IMG]

    I know how you feel. I went into lockdown yesterday and it has been wiggling ever since. It is so nerve wrecking. But the good news is I have an internal pip on it. Good luck on your hatch!!!

    Well I hope all goes well with your hatch. Mine are still doin the lil dance lol it's cute to watch the shell move back and forth. This will be my first hatch the last one didn't go so well either. So I hope we both get many more chicks!!

    I will be going into lockdown tomorrow with a batch of eggs. I can't walk away. I love to look at the eggs and go into my hatching room and am always peering into the hatchers. I am a hatch-a-holic...

    So I have a question how long does it usually take after you have an internal pip. I candle it this mornin just to see and sure enough the lil booger was in the air sack.
