    You have to go to work? Are you sure you don't feel a cold coming on? It wouldn't hurt to miss just one day would it? Hopefully they wait until you get home tonight so we can see lots of pics. [​IMG]

    Congrats. I hope you get babies soon. I just took my Sassy eggs out of the turner this morning. Technically tonight starts day 18 on those but since my other batch seem to be pipping early, I figure it was best to go ahead and get that humidity going. I am so excited, and I know you are. Keep us posted.
