    [​IMG] [​IMG] That's to funny.
    Yep, you can do it. The time will fly by before you know it. Or will it? Here's wishing you nothing but the best of luck with your hatch.
    Coincidentally, I am into day 8 of my first ever incubator hatch myself. I candled my nine eggs for the first time tonight. Got 7 of the 9 growing for sure. Can't be sure about the other two just yet. So as of today I am 13 days from hatch day. 13 x 24 = ? Oh, what the heck! Gotta go do something to pass the time. Good luck to ya'

    The hours sound like so much longer! I went with weeks. 3 weeks, 2 1/2, 2, 1 1/2, 1, now I count days, 5 (finally!)

    Of course, come hatch day, I won't get any sleep at all, and will probably take 50 million photos of the same pip [​IMG]
