Hi @Deejo20 👋

I haven’t incubated eggs in a few months but I did find that my first two times incubating eggs were the longest 21 day periods ever but I also learned a lot and had a lot of fun.

Since this is either your first time or first time in a while incubating eggs, I think you’ll just have to impatiently wait the 21 days 😂

Welcome to BYC!
