    Get on your egg glasses, you know, the ones that allow you to see the tiniest vibration. [​IMG]

    Okay, this evening is the end of day 18, beginning of day 19. All the eggs are in the hatcher. I put a cardboard divider down the middle, put the blue rocks on one side, and Julie's blue orps and Jody's americaunas on the other side. I really hope I get some americauna girls. Those eggs are absolutely scrumptious, huge and blue. I love em. Last hatch I had (I sound like Ive been doing this for years, dont I), which happened to be the first hatch I ever had, I had the first pip on day 19, so Im really watching things. In fact, I might have to go look at them again...
