    So my husband and I set eight eggs for the first time, and last night 2 eggs hatched and we have to chicks running around the incubator! This is so exciting. Besides my children being born I have never seen anything this exciting.

    So here I am watching the rest of the eggs because we have 3 more eggs that have pips in them. I should be cleaning my house and working on laundry but instead I am standing on a chair hunched over the incubator!

    We have hatched some eggs under a broody chicken, and when one starts to pip we just sit there in the coop squatting over her (the hen) and picking her up ever two minutes to check how the eggs are doing. It is just so exciting!
