    Today is day 21 since I placed 8 eggs, I purchased from a BYC member, under my broody hen. I am so envious of those who can watch the progress through the window on an incubator. My hen, Iris, has been pretty patient with me when I feel around under her for any signs of eminent hatching but now I think I should leave her be and wait for any little heads to poke out from under her. But I am so anxious! What if they need my help! I know this is the way nature intended it to be, but I want as many as possible to make it! I'm just venting my anxiety here rather going to the hen house and bothering Iris! Thanks for listening.
