    OK Barebottom, I know what your feeling. So, this is what you do, stay on the byc board until you just can't stand us anymore, or you fall asleep, whichever comes first. [​IMG] But keep those hands off the bator. [​IMG] I know how hard that is, believe me! Yes, sometimes you will see rock n rollin. Then a pip, thats when you really go nuts. [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I' not laughing at you, I'm laughing with you because I remember being you. Yes they should start to pip on Sat. But if they don't give them time and let me remind you, DO NOT OPEN THE BATOR, DO NOT OPEN THE BATOR. How's that. I've never seen my rock but a lot of people have I think my eyes are just bad. I hope you get to see your's rock and get lots of babies. How many do you have in the bator?>

    Go watch TV or read a book. Good luck.

    Quote:Think positive, this is my first hatch as well, set on the 7th and I woke up to fuzzy butts this morning! So far 4 out, 1-2 more have pipped. I have not opened my bator since lockdown on Monday and my humidity is right about 65%, you think you can't stay out of the room now...just wait till they start to hatch!
