    Hehehehe, yep, we went to town for a few supplies and I told DH we had to get home because we were on IBW. Several have been rocking today. Hopefully, I'll have an early pipper.

    Wow - how do you deal with the stress? Right after my last hatch I sterilized the bator and turner and stored it in the basement so I wouldn't get any more ideas until spring. So far it's working - I've only looked at once. [​IMG]
    Good luck - we will all be waiting for updates.
