    we have 3 for sures and 4 possibly's and 2 wait and see's. Darn it, I wish I had had a camera to show you all. It was so neat. This is my first time ever incubating and I am so excited now that I have seen this.
    My daughter and I were googling over a chick inside an egg. [​IMG] My hubby came in the room and looked and he thought the same as us. There only 1 problem.....I have 9 days to go [​IMG] on this hatch and 19 on the other [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You are doing this because you have caught the dreaded, incurable, chickie fever. I barely survived my first hatch and I am about to start my second one. Good luck on those little ones. Yes, candling and seeing those tiny developing babies is a HUGE thrill!!! I felt like a serious chicken obstetrician!!!
