    I'm soooo happy for you, BBCS! My little ones have siblings coming into the world! [​IMG]

    I'm just so excited for you! I remember my first hatch, and I can feel your excitement! I think you should mark the first chick hatched, as I don't think you should ever get rid of it. [​IMG]

    Please keep us posted, and don't forget the pics! [​IMG]

    It will be super hard for you to go to bed...but do try. You're still sick, and there may not be much action overnight. But then again, you may wake up to a whole bushel basket of chicks in that bator! I can't wait to see the look on your face tomorrow...priceless!

    James says, "Mom, I'll have the most special family in my class! More brothers and sisters than anyone!"

    Congratulations on your new baby. I have had 4 hatch last night and today with 4 more pipping. I think Saturday will be the big day though. Good luck with the rest of your hatch. Brad
