    Me too! Me too!!
    I've got 14 eggs locked down in the incubator! This is my first try at incubating, so I'm sooo not sure of anything right now. Their airsacs look way to big, and they have lost too much weight, so I'm thinking high humidity is a must for the next three days. Hope they don't pop out early -- the brooder isn't ready!

    My eggs are BO crossed with RIR, BO and Plymouths. Should be fun!
