    [​IMG] tomorrow's the big day!

    I won't even go in the room with the 'bator!!

    I had 9 out of 16 eggs make it to day 18, so I think that is pretty good!!! I'll be pleased if one or two hatches...anymore than that, I'll call bonus!

    [​IMG] c'mon chickies!!

    I practiced the best self control this time around! I only candled on day 7, 14, and 18 when moving to the hatcher! Didn't open the 'bator at all the rest of the time, except to add more water!

    Did have 2 days were my temps dropped to 95, but I caught it and fixed it...so I am betting that might delay them like Tori's eggs....

    But I'm NOT opening the 'bator no matter what!!!!
