    It took a while, but I did. I have them on a towel. I should have done everything just the same as last time. Ugh. I'm so afraid I've ruined everything. I don't hear tapping, and I want to candle but I don't want to bother them. I'm just going to leave them alone and they hatch, or don't. I already have buyers lined up for all the SS chicks, but I've been very careful not to make promises on the number of chicks I expect or not. So if none hatch, then everyone will just have to wait til next month, or find a different source.

    I have some FBMC eggs in there but since I did the dry method I guess they're ok?

    Just the one bator. I did them all dry. It's so humid here all the time, they stayed at 35% the whole time without me ever adding any water.

    Ok, I broke down and candled three. One had really good movement. Two didn't move as much, but they did move. So I'm content now to wait. :)

    awesome campingshaws. [​IMG] 4 hrs. at the drs. today. waiting most the time. Tom got antibiotics and cough med. they wanted his blood and he took off out the door. LOL I went to go bring him back in and he was puking and hitting himself in the chest trying to get air so I went back and told them no blood today. they did finger sugar prick on me. 270 ! never been more then 150 . I am the one passing out from low sugars, not high. BP was too high and the nurse told me i looked cranky. they poked me 2xs. I am a really hard draw. I got my eggs in, got the humidity fixed. good to go. will know in a few days if they are good or not.

    Granny, [​IMG] Hoping you get something from those eggs. Wouldn't that be something?
