    Day 21 and we've got nothing going on in there. I started softly talking to them. Trying to encourage them to come out. Then started raising my voice. Now I'm pretty much ready to start shaking it, just like I do to wake my teenager...

    I set the egs on 3/16 - does that mean yesterday was day 21? Many have hatched, could I candle tonight to see how things are going?

    It's best not to candle at this point. Better to just let them be.

    I've still got nothing going on. There might be the beginning of a pip, but it's hard to tell. [​IMG]

    I understand but try jumping up and down and screaming. Once you're tired it will be easier to wait. Prayers from here.

    [​IMG] Good one!


    I've still got nothing. I'm starting to think they might be duds. [​IMG]
