I've noticed there are a lot of posts where someone will pose a question and within an hour demand to know why no one has responded. A lot of times these seem like common questions that have been answered in a number of times if you just search for them, like what temperature to keep a brooder, what physical traits indicate a cockerel instead of a pullet, etc. How often do you think people use the forum search feature before posting? Do you think that the instant gratification of being able to post to the internet spoils us? As an aside, I did a search on "Impatience" and came up with lots of hits for being impatient on eggs to hatch. Perhaps there is a similar thread deeply imbedded in BYC. If so, I don't mind if an administrator deletes mine.
