    It is the end of day 19. I got home from work and found the incubator 1 degree too high. The humidity is at 73. I was worried about the heat and was adjusting it when I heard peeping!!! I peeped back and tapped on the window. Three of 7 started wiggling and they were peeping back at me!! Oh!! Thank God! At least I know I haven't killed them all. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You don't get much sleep when they start hatching. I was up constantly looking through the window. It is so neat when you can hear them peeping in the eggs.
    Come on chickies.
