In the Brooder
- Jun 14, 2012
I know ...I know I was not supposed to do it but I did, I deserve a good scolding and I will own it - but i just want some input (big sigh). Today is day 22 and I could not keep my hands of the bator, sorry! I picked out a predetermined egg which used to have a saddle shaped air cell but really doesn't anymore. I was not expecting any movement. I candled it! The little buggar is alive and I could hear it peep! So I quickly replaced it and made sure the bator is okay. I did not notice any internal pip?????...I noticed veins and yet I know it is not ready. But I could hear it peep...Here I am all sick to my stomach and I am not sure what to do ...sit on my hands, yes I know and shame on me - I am sitting on them now...any input would be great..I think these babies are going to be late to say the least...I thought I did a really good "fool proof" job. I wish one of you experts were here with me now. Sitting here - playing cards, whatever...keeping fingers crossed!!
