We are on day six, out of 21 days. I've been obsessing just a wee bit. Is the incubator the right temperature? How are they doing in there? Can their little ears hear when the low humidity alarm goes off? Yes, I know they don't have ears yet. But lots of things go through my mind. I even worried when Elvis was sitting on eggs. She was a good little mama.
My husband indulged me tonight and we candled a couple eggs ...
Blood vessels! At first I didn't see it for what it was, then it clicked. It's getting more real. My little fluffy butts are growing!
I can't even begin to explain just why this is so exciting to me. It's something that has grabbed me and not let go.
Some time back I came across this video online. If you have wondered what is going on in the egg during the 21 days, here you go.
Daily 5 things of the day that made me happy
1. I'm feeling *so* much better today. Still not 100 percent, but better.
2. Hearing the Blue Jays today. They were going after some bread I tossed out this morning
3. The smell of lavendar
4. The temps are gradually warming up
5. Peanut butter and honey toast.
