    It seems like theres a ton of us on lockdown or actually hatching tonight! For those that have hatched, can you post which day the excitement began (pips, peeping, zips, movement, etc.)? I'm dying over here waiting for SOMETHING to happen! On day 25 for our pekins...first hatch and crossing fingers!!!

    I went on lockdown tonight. This is my third hatch and I hope it is always this exciting! I have 13 Lavender Orpingtons from the mail and one from my Wheaten Marans crossed with my white Leghorn.

    what exactly is "lockdown"? I have a barred rock sitting on some eggs right now, want to see if we can hatch them out but i dont want to do the incubator thing on right now.

    I'm on lockdown as we speak. [​IMG]

    When I moved them from the egg turner to the wire bottom tonight.... I got one that pipped right away. I hope he makes it! I have been hearing peeping, but nothing else pipped yet!
