    It's my 3rd day on the project now. Setting the eggs was a nightmare and I messed up some humidity and forgot to take one of the red plugs out and cant keep a constant temperature to save my life...but other than that I'm good. I've calmed down alot today which is a miracle for me. If I had been capable of slowing down a bit in the first place I would've done better. My homegirl that hooked me up with my eggies says everyone messes up the first time. I'm glad I have her to support me and keep supplying me eggs till I get it right. I really want these babies to hatch...if none of them do I will be so depressed. I have 29 eggs. Sizzles, frizzles,cochin,polish,maybe a buff orpington so I'll get to be surprised which is really fun. Send good vibes to me for my nerves and for my eggies...I'll report back after the candling day...
