    I'm at day 20 in the same boat as everyone else who is incubating right now. I listen to the eggs, I watch for movement and worry like heck I did something wrong, or the power outage took a toll on my hatch.

    So I'm decreeing - If I fail at my two hatches I have going on (1st to reach day 21 tomorrow night), then McMurray Hatchery it is!! Any other takers? Cause this is killing me. [​IMG]

    It's going to be fine! I've decided from now on to not expect anything until the hour and day I set them. I learned my lesson! [​IMG]

    I think the good ju ju worked. I just got home from work and two eggs are rocking and peeping.

    I'm totally excited. A little less nail biting right now. Hurray for me!!!

    I am at day 24!!!!! I have been candling the eggs and they are still alive!!!! I know crazy huh? Hope yours hatches quickly. Just today they are rocking and peeping. In all the batches I have ever hatched this one has been the most stubborn!!! I have been to Tractor supply and Rural king and purchased chicks! This waiting is for the birds LOL. Best of luck to you!
