    YAY...a few days ago i only had 14 i was 100% sure of...tonight, some of my ?s were jumping around like crazy! so now i'm up for 18 soon to be babies [​IMG]

    i'm so stinking excited! 11 more days and we should have fuzzy butts!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    i'm like a momma checking on these things! it's crazy how obsessed you can get with these eggs! but i'm loving it. [​IMG]

    i cannot wait until day 21. i'll be up all night checking on em!

    so...as long as the temp and humidity stay in range for the nest 8 days...before lock down, i'm hoping and keeping fingers crossed that i should have 18 fuzzy butts pipping. [​IMG]:fl:fl:fl:fl

    8 more days til lock down..it's like i'm counting down for christmas i'm so excited! LOL

    I did that stayed up the entire 24 hours and I will never do that again. I always stay up every night till about 2 am and then go to sleep wake up at 6 am do my chores let the chickens out collect eggs and what not. But never stay up an entire 24 hours I am still trying to get back my energy and get rid of this cracking headache.....

    I know better next time to get plenty of rest.
