    K, here is mine.

    When you look anywhere around your house (when you are not in front of your 'bator), you are convinced you see little movement where there is none.

    Or is this just me?

    Any others?

    I know I've been in front of the 'bator and hatcher too long when my DH brings me dinner or drinks to the incubator/hatcher room.

    My neighbors come over to visit and head straight to the incubator and hatcher, and to check what's in the brooder.

    Definately the movement thing.

    I know I have been to long in front of the bator when I have to go get the the LED sight light off my husband's handgun because I have depleted all the batteries in the maglights.

    When every time a neighborhood bird chirps, you jump and run to the incubator to check the eggs for pips!

    When I start thinking I'm hearing chicks all over the house and looking in on the 'bator. My incubator is in the room next to me and there is a window in between, quite often open, so I think it must be from the incubator.
