    So we are just about ready to have our first set of eggs hatch in the incubator, we are about the 20 or 21st day...only my husband really knows what day we are on.

    We have no signs of cracks but I heard some peeps...is this normal? It's not constant but only a few every hour... Is this a sign that I might have cute little babies soon? [​IMG]

    I'm just a curious mother hen impatiently waiting, LOL.

    Be sure you dont get too excited and open the incubator too much. Its hard but you dont want to lower the humidity too much. Not opening the incubator is like looking at a chocolate cake you
    cant eat!
