    will make you smile! All 10 of mine kicking along. Then I go to check my quail eggs. I have one that looks like it might be doing something. So I candle it, which I KNOW is not easy, but first I saw what looked like veining, then I saw darkness in the egg...well today I say light passing through, then it got dark, then light, then dark. Looks like something is moving in there! [​IMG]

    Always makes me happy, to [​IMG] I'm always glued to the window of my incubator, trying not
    to breath so I can hear the little chirps. [​IMG]
    I hope you have an awesome hatch!

    You guys are making me wish my chickens were laying right now! So I could hatch some! [​IMG] I SO wish my buff bantam silkie pair was laying! If they were I would have eggs in the bator in a heart beat! (gotta wait till spring!)

    It's the first thing I did this morning :) My husband is gone training (again, blah) and I woke to the sound of coyotes near the house. So I knew I had to get out of bed to keep an eye on the coop, and saw the glow from the incubator... just seeing those little guys swimming around in there made me feel at ease.

    So now I'm looking at buying more eggs LOL.... maybe a whole deployments worth.
