Didn't I say I was done?

    I could swear I said I was done..not going to hatch anymore this season...talked about having to walk away from the computer so that I wouldnt buy those serama eggs a few days ago..

    Yes, I am certain I said I was done...wanted to be done for the summer. No more staring at the incubator after this last staggered hatch....

    I was possessed...yes, thats it...some unseen force took control of my hand and made it click "BUY IT NOW" for nine serama eggs...now here comes the reasoning part of my addiction..."But I DID start out with Seramas, and only had one hatch that didnt live except a few days..." "Nothing wrong with doing this hatch, start with seramas, end with seramas.."
    "Well, my friend can still borrow the one incubator- I will just keep the one with the auto turner..."

    [​IMG] at least its a healthy addiction....but I did figure out how it happens. It happens during the last day of waiting, staring at the incubator....thinking nothing is going to hatch....

    OKAY! After these seramas I AM DONE!

    now how could I possibly sell the incubator?
    What would I do with the eggs inside it? [​IMG]

    I DID tell my coworker he can borrow one of my incubators...soon as the last batch hatches.

    Good luck with your Serama hatch. I set the incubator at 100.5 and 55% humidity from day 1 -hatch and I don't turn the turner off.

    My eggs arent doing so good-out of twelve, five are clear, four are suspicious.

    I just ordered a dozen eggs from Frank- hopefully I can do better than the ones I have in there now. [​IMG]

    Good luck. What day are you on? I'm trying to wait PATIENTLY [​IMG] until day 7 (this thursday, 6am) to candle mine. I tried on day 3 with no luck, it was too early to really see anything. And I'm trying to handle them as little as possible this round. 2 more days!! [​IMG]
