    such a nervous wreck? LOL. Sorry I have been posting so many questions. This is my first hatch, and things seem to be going pretty well so far. So why do I have this feeling of dread that NO chicks will hatch?

    I have 30 eggs looking good (I think) but can't shake this feeling that not a one will hatch out.

    I'm on day 17 now, and haven't started obsessing about this until yesterday lol.

    Keep in mind that eggs have been hatching for millions of years under way less than ideal conditions... don't stress... enjoy! [​IMG]

    Oh my.....I am on day 10 of my first hatch and have been freaking out for......ohhhhh.....10 days now. Same feeling as you, that none will hatch even though they look great. Maybe this is normal??? I sure hope so!!!!
