I think I'm on day 20 - I set eggs at 8am many mornings ago, so does that day count as day 1? I've seen some confusing opinions about this.

At any rate, no noises or movement yet. If I stare at them long enough, my mind pretends that one is moving, but I think I just need to be patient =]

Good luck to everyone's hatches! It's more fun to know there are other BYC-ers lingering near the bater today and tomorrow!

I think I'll have the same problem. I'm only starting day 2 and I'm already hovering around the incubator. I just don't trust it to not screw up my first hatch, so I'm monitoring the temp and humidity levels obsessively. lol.

Locked down on turkeys. Had one surprise hatch four days early! Wasn't nervous til that happened and saw how freaking CUTE turkeys are, lol. Now I'm trying not to hover, sigh. The little early guy is in a brooder with a chick and doing well. Haven't seen him eat yet but he's already picking at chick, who is a week older and pays him no mind.

Day 26 for turkeys and have 3 pips this a.m. I'm glad I have 2 busy days to keep me away from the bator-this is nerve wracking, lol!The little early guy is keeping us entertained. Hubby is falling in love. He wanted me to sell any poults that hatch. Now he is like "We are going to keep a few, aren't we?" :lol:My response-"Don't count yer turkeys before they are hatched."
