    Shorty has been setting for about 22 days, now. What's the longest it could take for her eggs to hatch, assuming they will? I have the "nursery" and pen ready, I'm ready, . . . WHERE ARE THE BABIES?!
    The suspense is crazy-making!! [​IMG]

    I thought it was 21 days; is that just a rough number?

    *sigh* ohhhkay.

    Shorty sounds like she's percolating -- bukbukbukbukbukbukbuk -- I'm hoping she's talking to some babies.
