    and I'm already going nutty on this 21 day wait... [​IMG]

    I forgot this feeling. Maybe it's why I haven't hatched anything in 5 years. [​IMG]

    I've got one lonely EE egg and I'm praying it's fertile. I'm going to candle on day 14. That should yield some decent results right? I've never candled before, believe it or not.

    I soooooooooo know how you feel!! Day 5 here too. I candeled last night (end of day 4) and saw beautiful veins forming in every egg I could see through (finally, at first I saw nothing). My EE egs were IMPOSSIBLE, however. Good luck with the baby!!!!

    No what I meant was, I've got 15 eggs in there... but only one's an EE. I'm rooting for the little guy. I'm sure he'll have plenty of company.
