    I just put my 14 Delaware eggs in the Hatcher...WooHoo, 3 days to go! I am totally excited about this hatch. I have not wanted any chicken more than these Dels....I'm a bit nervous!

    This whole hatching thing is completely nerve racking!!! But its oh so worth it when you see them come out of the egg [​IMG]

    TJ, I'm excited for you. I'll be doing my second batch of Delaware eggs next month. The first one was a fertility test for one of our mutual friends, but this one will be to "fill the coop", if I'm lucky.

    How eggciting. Hatching is just thrilling. New life. Me and the DH loves to watch the babie chicks sleep the first week they hatch.

    Delaware are so beautiful. Did you get your eggs from someone on BYC? Regardless, I wish you luck!
