    Yay! At 20 1/2 days, I got my first pip! It is funny, I have been watching carefully four or five eggs that have been wiggling and rocking, expecting them to pip first, but the pip came from one of the others that I feared may not be alive anymore! Always a surprise!

    I am extremely pleased with the ferility of Mosby and how the eggs are making it through shipping. Most everyone has had awesome hatches. I guess the PO has been more gentle with them than usual.

    Yep! All twelve of these were fertile and arrived intact. Only two quit developing in the first week.

    I got 6 BBS eggs from MissPrissy and ALL 6 of them hatched 18 days ago. I got 2 blues, 1 black and 3 splash. They are so cute.
