    Put Silkie eggs in the hatcher this morning and am sort of determined NOT to open the lid and check on them -- just watch and wait-- telling myself do not open that thing, do NOT candle them, leave them alone!!!! but boy is it tempting to just make sure they are still moving,,, you know?
    I have not opened it since I put them in there early this morning, being good, resisting!
