    Okay wish me luck! I put the eggs in at 11:30 pm (Friday)

    I put 23 silkie eggs, 4 white leghorn and 10 RIR eggs.

    My neighbor wanted me to throw in some of his RIR and I added 4 of my white leghorn.

    I have temp at 100 and humidity at 46%.

    DH built a really nice candling box when we hatched eggs at school.

    I have my notebook for documenting. I count Sat as day 1. That puts day 18 on the day I have knee surgery. I have to be at the surgery center at 6 am. So I will probably take them out of the turner before going in that morning.

    Any suggestions or advice?

    I'm more nervous this time of hatching than I was before because I guess I know more!

    It's like being pregnant for the first time!
