    Just wait until lockdown LOL I had the incubator on my nightstand next to my bed and woke up periodically through the night to check and see if there was any progress on my last hatch. Looking forward to hearing your results (and hopefully lots of fluffy duckling pics)! [​IMG]

    Definitely. And I also have the incubator in my room, so I'll probably have a similar experience
