    That's what The Man has started calling me. The incubator is at my house! Whee! I can't wait to set the first batch of eggs. I got a flashlight last night to take a look at them, and i'm not sure how well they'll do.. they've been waiting on me since Thursday last. Some have some speckles in the shell? I think I saw somewhere that it means that the shell is more porus than it should optimally be? I'm going to try to hatch them out anyway. I did bid on some Silver Spangled Hamburg eggs, and if none of mine pan out then i'll start over and put these in. I have PCs thread with the step by step Fisher Price instructions bookmarked, and I got a thermo/hygrometer last night. I think i'm set.

    I think I have the stupid wafer in weird. It's just spinning when I turn the screw. This is nerve wracking.
