    [​IMG] Don't get me wrong I am uber excited! [​IMG] The eggs weren't supposed to get here until Friday sooo it was a pleasant suprise BUT I am not prepared. I ordered a fan..... it isn't here so guess I will not be using it this time around. I am looking at my eggs [​IMG] and I feel like a first time pregnant mommy all over again! I already tested my Little Giant and it regulates temp good, so it's on right now... eggs will be in our bedroom for the next 24ish days LOL that should be interesting [​IMG] I bet I wake up every couple of hours and refuse bow chica wow wow chica wow wow.... he he joke. I'm nervous got that funny sensation in my tummy, anyone else get the first time hatching jitters? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I have read so much if I read anymore I may hatch into a chicken [​IMG]

    Quote:i would ask the breeder on average how old the eggs are, then add the days they were in the mail, and if you have a day or so to spare under let's say....8 days max...you might be able to wait for the fan

    Thank you for that I didn't know the eggs could be kept I thought they had to be incubated pretty fast. It is hot and humid here and I don't have a cool place to keep them... this batch may not produce anything but I have to learn somehow right? I put the eggs in a couple hours ago, should prove to be interesting [​IMG]
