This is my third hatch ever. I put these 17 eggs in on March 29 after 7 PM. I don't have any little voices talking to me from the bator. Temp has held constant. Water trays have been kept full and two sponges(later removed for fear of too much humidity).

The bator is still silent today at 6:30 PM. I *think*(if not imagined) a couple of the eggs rock slightly. No, cracked eggs yet. In the first week of incubating, all 17 formed veins, so it *should* be 100% fertile.

I'm starting to worry, is putting the eggs in after 7PM throwing me off, is the 21st day for these guys not till later tonight?!?

Just need someone to help keep me from hovering over the bator like an anxious mother-hen.

Oh, I hadn't candled them recently. I've been putting so many eggs in the bator as they are laid. So every 4-5 days I would add another small set of eggs. By the time I realized I wanted to candle the first batch again, it was day 19.


21st day *ends* at 7? or begins? (just clarifying, not trying to be annoying){UPDATE: Nevermind.. Got my answer while typing the post!! Thanks!!}

Don't worry Kim - you're not the only one who talks, sings and coos to those little peepers. LOL
