    This is my first ever hatch. Its as good as any novel or movie. Drama, suspense, expectation, joy, sorrow, anxiety, humor
    no wonder people are hooked on incubating little chickies....

    I'm just DYING to meet these little peepers. There were 12 FOR SURE alive ones and 4 more that seem likely. Took out 8 clears to make more room for hatching.

    Eggs stand in their egg cartons like silent sentials.I keep hoping I will see rocking or hear chirping. Guess it's too early yet, tomorrow at 7:30am we hit day 20.

    I set up their brooder and got the temp just right.....
    Their coop is almost finished
    My house has little chicken care products stuck into nooks and crannies

    Come on babies!!!!

    My advise, DO NOT OPEN 'BATOR, until all are out of the shells!
    Very important, do not open!
