    They are 19 weeks today. A few have really red combs and wattles...others are catching up. I swear...it's like waiting for a pot to boil!!! [​IMG]

    I hate waiting, too. And, to make it worse....I just ordered a 'bator today because I don't have enough stress in my life or enough chores to do...LOL [​IMG]

    If I'm this bad over an egg being layed, how in the world am I going to be patient thru eggs hatching????? [​IMG]
