    What to do when waiting for day 7?

    I steam mopped the floors and dusted today. Me finding excuses to mope around the house by CLEANING IT is just completely out of character and wrong, wrong, wrong.

    So how do you make it to day 7????????

    I'm having about 30 to 40 people coming to my house on Sunday. You could come over and help me clean while your waiting. [​IMG]

    What day are you on???

    Approximately what day should you be able to see veining if they are viable?

    Marans are on day 5 (set 6th), BBS orps are on day 3 (set 8th).

    When I set the serama eggs, I could see veining on the 3rd or 4th day. I candled EVERY DAY (what a fiend). I think that did not help my hatch, so this time I am smacking myself around and trying to teach myself some patience!

    Gin, can I clean your coop, corrals, and car while I'm at it? [​IMG] My pleasure. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
