    Well this morning at 4am I got home from work and there were 6 eggs just rocking around and that made me happy because I knew they were probably coming out pretty soon. Then I went to bed and today...well no rocking and no peeping that I heard yesterday from one of the eggs.
    So I preceded to start "balking" like a mother hen at them to see if they would "peep" back at me though the eggs like before and they all were silent.

    Oh yea and my temps are starting to go up and up and I have to keep changing them........

    Any help would be appriciated. Thanks guys!

    If you're only on day 19 they could be sleeping and resting.
