    And here I thought 9 months of pregnancy was long. (Well, it *is*.)

    Nine months is NOTHING to 21 days. How do you people deal with this? Sheesh.

    I am on day 4.

    Im on day 4 aswell. But i've hatched chickens eggs a million times over. I dont even watch now. I totaly forget about them and they pretty much do all of the work themselves. I have an automatic turner too, so that helps.

    Oh yes, this is also my first time hatching geese and those take up to 30 day and you have to mist and cool them each day, and I have call ducks coming tommorrow aswell so i'll be having to mist them too.

    I didn't know if I was going to be able to stand to wait 21 days so I found things to occupy myself. Today is Day 21 for me and I have 2 Gold Lace cochin hatchlings in my incubator. [​IMG] It was well worth the wait for me. Now if the other eggs would hatch......

    Just be glad you're not hatching ducks.[​IMG]
