    Thanks for the encouragement MissPrissy and orlandoluv1 - I was a wreck with MissPrissy's hatch and I am sure I will be even more so with my own. I am going to use the 1202 Sportsman until they pip and then move them into a Little Giant in the bedroom.

    Hey, equibling, that's great! Mine came from KY a rather short ship - they mailed them Monday and I got them today - they told me two were laid sunday.

    I am going to try and not worry myself sick. I haven't figured out how to put them in the turner - they said they turned them themselves but I sure would like to take advantage of the turner if possible......but I will have to work out something to keep them stable - I don't have a goose egg thingy's for the turner - I may have to work out something - to stabilize them. My husband has two trays full of eggs so I get the top tray. I could turn the turner off and hand turn all of them......? See, it has started already. Nerves!!!! Worry!!! [​IMG]

    I candled them - the 7th day - one is clear - four appear to have something going on. I am the worst when it comes to candling. Keep your fingers crossed!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I rest and mist everyday and candle them and squint and look and yes it looks like something big is in four of them and one is still clear. In the photo it's the one on the far right - the smallest one. I am just terrible when it comes to candling eggs. I candled a chicken egg that was nearby and couldn't see anything - it hatched yesterday![​IMG]

    See what I mean!!!! I am a nervous wreck!!!! I want some "blue eyes" !!!
