    I'M ON DAY 18, I'M ON DAY18. I am hatching these eggs for someone else and I'm hoping so bad they all hatch for her. I don't even know what kind they are. [​IMG]

    I know I have 20 good ones for her. [​IMG]

    i've been checking the eggs for pips every 5 minutes... i think i'll feel better once i get at least one pip, everytime i worry that none of them will hatch and then all of them do!! i think this is the worst day for waiting for chicks, you're so close, but not quite there yet... [​IMG] hatch please!!

    day 20 begins with no action... i'm starting to lose it!! i'm very tempted to mess with one of the eggs... i've never waited this long for eggs, even the seramas were hatched by day 20
