    Today is day 18 for my "crazy egg swap" from Sommer. Last night I saw little chicks moving around,but much slower. I guess it's getting cramped in there. I will remove the eggs from the turner this afternoon(which quit working anyway,I guess the motor died),crank up the humidity and join the nail biters. I better get my brooder set up,right?

    That is good news Sylvia. I checked the egs tonight and so far all is quiet. I have to work late tomorrow,and I'm not sure if that is a curse or a blessing.
