    for these itty bitty eggs to hatch day 16 trying to do other things besides spy on the eggs, I'm glad I was at work today off tomorrow, but if they don't hatch tomorrow I might have to take more maternity leave on tuesday, wed and geez its 21 days for the chicken eggs friday. this is going to be the longest week of my life, what do you people do when your waiting for hatching. I guess I can take a napI'll be up every 2 hours tonight and I couldn't sleep last night I couldn't do this too often it was easier being pregnant myself, I'll need to sleep in the spare room with the incubator.

    now I'm paranoid about them drowning in the shell, what should the humidity be at this point.

    WooHoo! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    What I do most of the time is just stare at the incubator window until they "ALL" Hatch! LOL [​IMG]

    Hehe, you could always: Clean House, make quail shaped cookies, go stare at your empty brooder, get on BYC and just stare at pictures of baby buttons ( like I did when I first hatched out buttons ... [​IMG] ), OR .... you could just go stare at the incubator like you will do anyway .... [​IMG]
