    Lockdown is on day 18.. today is day 18 for eggs set on the 22nd unless my poor tired brain can't count. I have eggs due to hatch on Friday.. and mine went on lockdown yesterday (the 8th)

    Hope this helps..

    What kind are you'll hatching?
    I've got 8 LF Salmon Faverolles, 6 LF Ameraucana/EE, 1 LF Wellie X and 1 brown ? egg X. 11 of these are shipped eggs and 5 are from my girls.
    Got my bator last May and have been hatching almost nonstop. Yep, I'm hooked!!!
    These last 3 days are always the loooooongest. Tick, Tick Tick, wish that clock would hurry up.
    Hope you'll are warm. Tonight is suppose to be the coldest night we've had, plus 25 to 30 mph north winds. ACK!!!!
    I've just finished cooking my girls some oatmeal and sweet potatoes, now I have to brave the cold to take it out to them.
    Take care,
    Christine
