    I know what you mean I practially cuff my hands behind my back and sit on them LOL.
    I have assisted hatches before.. Well to confess all of them because the humidity has been off on lock down. But I have some going on lock down today or tomorrow (will have to check the calendar) and I'm nervous as my last hatch (yesterday) went bad so I know how you feel. But I tell ya what once you get the "high" of seeing the first chick out your gonna want to keep hatching lol

    That's great. I hope you get another one so it has a friend.
    Next time, I'd raise the temperature 2F.
