    [​IMG] Well, it's going to be another exciting weekend in my house. Tomorrow, I've got 4 sizzle eggs from jimnjay going into the hatcher. And all 4, as of candling on day 14, look great. [​IMG] I'll be doing a final candling tonight. If you haven't seen jimnjay's stock, check out her website. Her sizzles are gorgeous! [​IMG] I can't wait to see these little guys!

    I just candled the eggs....they all look wonderful! [​IMG] The moment the light hit them, they started moving around. I can't wait til tomorrow, when I up the humidity and start holding my vigil over the hatcher! [​IMG] I've become a hatchaholic! [​IMG]

    Yahoo! I think the pins and needles we are on with an impending hatch is what makes this so addicting. I hope you get some real cuties. I will keep checking this thread to see how it goes.

    The eggs are turned for their last time, and I just added water for the humidity increase. I'll post again when the eggs start rockin'! [​IMG] Jimnjay, I am SO addicted to hatching eggs. There's just something about knowing, for sure, that there's little lives inside those eggs and they are about to come into the world. It's truly a miracle to behold. Well....let the countdown begin!

    I just came in to check the stats on the eggs....and one of them is rockin' already! [​IMG] With my last hatch of Delawares, once they started rockin', they were pipped and hatched within 24 hrs. Oh the excitement is building! [​IMG]
