    Well, I just happened to be walking by my incubator this afternoon and happened to notice that 4 have eggs pipped... and all those pips are on or around the last air cell line I made. I can also hear chirping coming from the incubator. If I happen to walk by again I might just take another look.
    Translation: Maybe we should just cancel ALL our plans for the next two days, set up the Go Pro and camp out with the incubator. But that would be completely irrational... right?!


    My Ancona duck eggs arrived in the mail today. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I will be following this https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...arn-chat-meet-new-friends/53840#post_16540512 "Shipped Eggs = Change of Plans" TO THE LETTER. I am so excited about these eggs. I have 20 that are settling for 24 hours as they were laid Monday and Tuesday. For just arriving I think the air cells looked better than the "Farmers Market" eggs I am currently hatching but there are a few that are saddled an a couple detached. They also arrived a day early but I am just still following the "Guide" and keep moving forward.
    Come on chicks! Hatch and clear the incubator![​IMG]
    [​IMG] Hello ducklings. You just settle down, get situated and get ready to grow. [​IMG]

    I've never been this scared and reluctant to set eggs. This isn't my first (second or third) hatch. It's not even my first (second or third) hatch this year. They're just staring at me.

    Current fear: baby sitter will adjust the thermostat in the house (she wears sweatshirts in summertime) and fry the eggs.

    You worry too much, it's better to set them and hope than let the eggs go to waste. Just sayin
