    Ugh. It will officially be day 19 for my 26 shipped silkie eggs in lockdown at 3:30om. And even though I KNOW probably nothing at all will happen for a couple days I CAN'T seem to stop myself from checking on them at least once per hour! HELP I need counseling or something. I'm so impatient I'm gonna lose my mind!!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
