    I hope so also! It's been beautiful weather here, but we have to go somewhere today and tomorrow and not relax, but Sunday will finally be free and I can clean coops or something.

    I just woke up this morning, went outside, and noticed something was really trying hard to dig under the coop, but didn't make it through the wire. [​IMG]

    Well, one more week to go, but I have a very bad feeling about this hatch. I think I may have cooked my eggs [​IMG].

    I set 42 eggs on Thursday night the 12th, so I expect chicks in a week, too. I candled at 8 days and took out eight eggs (of course, two days later I put in eight more - what a disease this hatching business it). I pencil the line the airsack makes and Sunday night, I'll candle again to make sure it is growing appropriately. No matter how many times I hatch, I get just as excited.

    Yesterday, one of my hens went broody, so I isolated her and stuck 10 eggs under her.
