    Do I rotate them if I see them rocking? It's day 17 and tonight I rotate them one last time, should I still do that?

    I put them in March 23rd, but didn't count that as day 1, I counted the 24th as day 1.

    If you see them ROCKIN DON'T COME KNOCKIN.
    They will take care of themselves from here on out.

    so do I rotate the ones that I haven't seen rocking? Or should I call it good and let them do their thing?

    If you put all the eggs in at the same time. do not touch them. You must be pass day 18, so they will be alright. After day 18 you just wait them out, DO NOT OPEN THE BATOR FOR ANY REASON OTHER THAN A DEAD CHICK.

    actually, tomorrow would officially be day 18, unless they are gonna be early. According to my calculations that is the official time. I will not open the bator anymore. I'm sooooo excited!!! Can't wait to see what they look like - they're mix breeds.


    Thank you all!!
