    It's day twenty and I do not see any movement or hear a sound. Everything looks as it did eight hours ago when I said goodnight to the incubator and its contents.
    My temps are good and so is my humidity, thanks to everyone for all your help, I hope they are just lazy little birds waiting to surprise me at the last minute.
    My flashlight battery is fading, my eyes are blurry, hallucinating pips and imagining that this egg is now closer that one.... My prayers have change to G-d,let the thermometer read 99.5
    I just hope all well.

    Yesterday, day 20 on my next batch, didn't see or hear a thing...this morning I got up and one is working on zipping his way out....you'll get there yet. I have found each batch is different.

    I am waiting also. I heard a cheep though so I'm hoping that all is well! Good luck. This stinks doesn't it?????
    This is only my second hatch but both times when it got down to the last few days I just hate it. It's too hard on me!!!! I'm always afraid that I'm a big chicken killer:-( Last time they popped right on out though so it should be fine!

    Katy you have even more hatching????? You are a lucky girl:)

    I am officially jealous:/
    How many will you have if they all hatch? And what all do you have, I am curious?

    Are we all crazy??? These have not peeped, or chirped or moved and just like all of you I am plotting the next batch! My neck is sore from turning to the right to read the thermometer, I should move the computer to the other side just to even things out. Let me tell you my childrens labor and birth was less tiring! Good luck to everyone, we will have to arrange a virtual play day for all our expected babies!
