    I'm just so excited!! I bought a cute little r-com 3 egg incubator (thought that the kids could take it to school next year if I didn't like hatching---who'da thought it was so much fun!!!) so---I have 3 polish eggs set. and today was the day to put in the hatching tray. when I shut the lid, to my surprise they were all wiggling![​IMG] I new they were all alive because I candled them with he scope that came with it..but man, I had no idea that those little suckers could move the eggs around too! How fun. And now we wait![​IMG]

    LOL! for the fun!
    Actually, there's a few stickies, and a lot of information here...
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=48726

    It helps to have your brooder box ready with lamp, food, water, vitamins, etc. That way if they come early you're not caught by surprise!

    But really, I didn't mean to scare you... it's just that chicks are SO much fun to have around! Better than TV!
