    It is extremely nerve wracking for those first 20 days and you think you are going to lose your mind as time passes so slowly. Then Day 21 comes and you think you could just explode with worry and excitement.

    It all pays off when that little baby breaks out of the shell though isn't it?

    I know I went insane waiting!

    If a fast forward button will help, then here ya' go. I wish I knew it was this easy when I was waiting for my chicks!!



    Good luck with your eggs and just try to keep busy. That's the best way to make time go faster. [​IMG]

    I am so with you, Shellie!
    I just put some Araucana eggs under my broody hen yesterday and I want them to hatch today! I mean now! [​IMG]
    How did I ever wait for my child to be born? Uh, wait, I don't think I was this excited. [​IMG]

    At least you have a head start on me and don't have to wait as long. Count yourself lucky![​IMG]
