Lockdown

The countdown is on. Yesterday was day 18 and after days of constant turning and monitoring, the eggs were turned on end,
big end up, and the incubator was sealed. Now we wait and watch the fate of 20 eggs.

Over the last two weeks the twins have asked how many of the eggs will hatch,
will two eggs hatch at exactly the same time, and how will they get out?

Gee, why don't they just ask me the winning lottery numbers?

Well, except for that last question. That one just garnered the look.

Curiousity is a wonderful thing, for the curious one...not so much the ones that have to answer.
I like the simplicity of this.

I can feel the excitement building! One day I'll get up the nerve to try hatching my own chickens & ducks, lol!

I can't wait to see how many hatch!

Maternal instincts factor in to this... don't they.

Should be fun to watch as the first begin to pock the inside of their shells.

Too cool! I have always wanted to farm chickens... but I don't know if I'd actually think it is all that romantic if I actually had to do it. =/ Happy egg watching!
