    [​IMG] Post pictures when they start to pip! I'll do the same. I'm so excited! Yet, I worry about them not hatching! Even though its only day 19! Mine might be a day late because I started with a broken thermometer, but I hope not! Hatch chickies, hatch! I think I"m going to force myself to take a nap so I so I stop running into the laundry room every few minutes. Keep me posted!

    I'm so anxious/bored/excited that I just ate an entire box of tic-tacs. WOAH. Okay. Take deep breaths. What breeds/how many eggs are you incubating? I've got five Ameraucanas and three Silkies. Post a picture of your brooder/wherever you're putting them when they hatch! [​IMG] Glad to have someone to share in the excitement!

    My brooder, i think i might put something else in it, but I'm not sure quite what. Any ideas? :

    [​IMG]

    My eggs! The small, light, cream-ish ones are the silkies :

    [​IMG]

    What kind of incubator are you using? I'm using an LG one, not sure if I like it too much... This is only my second time incubating anything, ever! Last time we had a power outage on day 13. [​IMG] Hopefully this hatch turns out better! What humidity+temp are you at? Right now I'm at just below 100 and 74%. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] i'm right there with you! glad to share the excitement with you too:ya we definately need to keep eachother posted. as far as incubators i'm using the Rcom 20. i love it! the temp and humidity never budge! it's great for me since i've never done this before and it's fool proof [​IMG] i have 8 muscovy eggs in there right now [​IMG] this is day 32, first day of lockdown!

    [​IMG]

    i like your brooder [​IMG] i was just going to use a big plastic tub with newspaper or something but now that i see yours i might try and put something like that together [​IMG]

    i have my temp at 98.5 and humidity at 70% i'd rather have it at 75 ish but this incubator only goes up to 70 [​IMG]

    i have a feeling i'm going to be checking on them every time i wake up tonight [​IMG]

    i really hope some of them hatch i only see 1 and a possible 2nd or 3rd wobbling slighty one way more than the others. hope they're healthy and ready to come out [​IMG]

    Nice 'bator! How the heck did you get that thing? It look super nice! So, ducklings? How cute! I love ducks! When I checked just a minute ago, I noticed that one of the eggs had turned from the part of it's shell that reads "O" to the side that says July 23! Woohoo! That means it scooched about... a half inch [​IMG] Oh well, thats a start, right? I'm sure all your ducklings will come out fine, if they're already wobbling! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
