    Tommorrow is hatch day, I know it is early but I wish they would peep or move or do something just so I know they're still alive. I am really really bad at the waiting thing.

    This is my 5th hatch but all my previous ones were very bad hatches. Now I have a new incubator and 16 have made it to hatch day which is the most I have ever had make it to hatch day. i love my new bator the temps and humidity are perfect but I am still so very nervious.

    Good luck with your hatch. Just curious, what type of incubator did you get?

    cory,

    just sit back and relax, watched eggs take longer to hatch than cold tar running uphill. i have a hatch coming tuesday/wed. just relax, you have a very good hot box and hopefully 16 birds getting ready to pop out....

    meh, I'm not doing any better! They better start peeping tonight or I'm gonna worry. I just wish I could crack them open and get the chicks out.

    But you have that nice new expensive bator and its going to do this right for you! Get busy with something else and pretty soon, there'll be a baby in there.
