    So cute!!



    For those of you that don't get out much, our little ruby ([​IMG]) is flooding the boards with help. She's on fire out there!! lmao! It's great to see. Of course I'm left with just agreeing, but it's great!

    When I had bought that LG for a few days I read the manual. I don't know if it's been updated but I'm sure it has. I will give them props because, as I recall at least twice, the manual said to talk to knowledgable hatchers for more detailed hatching information. I was very happy that they at least put that in writing more then once!!!

    110% agree! Me too!

    Someone on here, I can't remember who, said to have 2 flashlights and hold one on each end of the egg. In a dark room, of course.

    LOL! The baby took an extra long nap this morning! I was all caught up on this board so I figured I'd look around. That's what started my morning rant. Amy, it's usually the other way around!! I look at a thread and I'm like "oh they're in good hands, Amy's got this one covered"!

    I think that's why I just stay in here now. There was a time when you could pull up the hatching board, and Amy would have the last post on at least 8 threads [​IMG]

    Edit: People talk about how much I post, but it's only in here. Amy has only been a member 2 months longer than me and has twice as many posts [​IMG]

    Yep, that's the way I look at it too. I'd love to be incubating now, but I really don't need any more at this point, and I'm not good at selling them, soo.... I live vicariously through those that are still hatching. For now...

    I think I've seen it all now. SC smacks Lazy... You've gone off the deep end, my friend! [​IMG]

    lol

    LMAO

    Every once in a while it's still like that, especially on the weekends when there's less going on in here, but not as much as it used to be for a couple reasons: half the time I'm doing good just to keep up in here, and a lot more of the boards these days are dealing with broodies and they aren't my thing. Plus sometimes I just look at something and shake my head and say to myself, walk away, cause some people just blow my mind and I know if I open my mouth I won't be my generally pleasant self...lol (No comment from the court jester.) Seriously though, sometimes I just can't answer because I don't feel it will make a difference.

    Yes, lol, I love helping if I can. I love thinking I might be able to help someone from having an awful hatch and save them the feeling of my first hatch or at least repeatedly having bad ones. And I am very opinionated and hate seeing someone being told you HAVE to do it this way....lol

    As I said before I read a ton before my first set of eggs but hands on experience is so valuable! My first thread I ever made was because I couldn't find the air cells on my first set of eggs!! I had never looked in an egg before and I thought they'd be big cells, like the 7 day candling model. Amy talked me through it, ever so patiently. She was probably thinking "is this chick serious!!" :gig

    I was a month behind you, and still a few posts behind you. But I'll never catch you... [​IMG]
