    They will be going into Lock-Down around 3:3:30 since thats when I set them. Today is day 25.
    I candled the eggs and didn't see any movement in them.. I have 4 that have made it this far.

    Remember the wet sponges trick if you need them to get your humidity up past 70% [​IMG]

    You must have your birds on a light to be laying now. The fertillity might be low this time of year but I hope you have a good hatch.

    I bought them from one of my facebook friends in WV.

    I'm putting them in lockdown. Gonna fill the troughs up and put a couple sponges in and now begins the waiting. [​IMG]

    Quote:No, but I saw that the air cells are getting bigger. I did see a little movement in one of them.
    To be honest I have very little faith or any if they hatch.

    Oh and who wants to see the escape guinea that was on the Roof from yesterday?? She was constantly Buck-Wheating the whole time and guess who had to climb on the roof with a broom to get her to fly off?? Me! [​IMG] I'm scared half to death of heights, too!

    I sprayed her with the hose, threw my shoes at her, and even threw these rubber balls that my nephew plays with at her!
    She ignored getting hit with the shows and balls and was just stareing at me and it sounded like she was saying "HAHA!"
    And she loved being sprayed with the hose, too!
