    Ok I have 1 cuckoo marans egg that started to rock today! ooohhh goody! I set them on March 9th and my salmon EEs on March 10th in the evening so I guess this would be Day 19/20 for the marans depending on how you count it! Humidity is at 75% and I am making mutiple trips to peer at my eggs....hopefully I'll have an a.m. surprise! No pipping yet but this has gotta be close! The suspense is killing me![​IMG]

    I know that feeling. I have only one left that is due tomorrow and then 5 due on Saturday. The one is under a broody so it is not as nerve wracking as I can't see it every time I pass the room.

    Good luck on you hatch
