    I am on day sixteen of my first hatch.
    I have 15 eggs in the bator.
    What is so crazy is.......I am just so nervous about it.......
    I am an RN and worked 22 years in ICU, ER and or Recovery....life and death situation and now I am nervous over my bator of eggs.
    I so want a good hatch.
    I see all the cute little ones from dipsy though out the forum.
    I have tried my best to make sure all has gone well.
    I have read thread after thread.....I have candled and check the bator throughout the day.
    So Sunday is day 18 and the eggs go into the hatcher.....
    I dreamed I only had two to hatch, but what was funny is they were the most beautiful birds I had ever seen.......one even had rhinestones.
    I think I have enter the "chicken zone"..............

    Been there....Id like to say it gets easier on your net hatch--but that would be a lie!! Good luck!

    Yep - I've had 4 babies and hatching eggs is worse than waiting and worrying about your OWN babies!

    Ok, thanks, I feel better.
    I just hope I have some fluffies in the next 4-5 five days!!!
    I will be so happy.
    I can see where this could become addicting.
    What do you do with all your pretty birds.....sale them.....keep them......??

    Yep, Yep. My unprofessional diagnosis is that you have a severe case of chick fever. The only known cure for it as I understand it, is to HATCH SOME EGGS!!!!
