    Lets hope chicken little has done her job....

    Checked on her and the other girls, but no chickies yet.

    I set the eggs late on tuesday night, so took Wednesday as day 1. Hopefully some pipping/zipping tomorrow morning.

    Won't be able to sleep.

    Also the weather has been warm and damp the past few days, almost like someone up there has increased the humidity naturally.

    Hope those babies come out soon for you! I'm incubating eggs now, and as fun as that has been, nothing beats seeing a baby chick peeping out of its mom's wing!

    I have a hen sitting on what I thought was 11 eggs, but I counted yesterday is 13. Tomorrow is also day 21 for us too. No cracks, pipping or anything. I've got the brooder ready and divided. I also have Silkies coming from Meyer tomorrow. Oh My, Good lucks with you hatch
