    It looks like two have internally pipped- some of the other eggs have some shadowing around the air cells, but on one of them the air cell hasn't even dipped down yet and I'm not seeing any shadows. Not sure if that one's still viable. I guess we'll see!

    So far, everything going smoothly during lockdown. Multiple internal pips and even got my first external pip this morning. Should have babies tomorrow. :)

    13 with the parents and 5-6 more eggs in the nest. The 2 eggs that were abandoned hatched. Will raise them separate. Learned that lesson the hard way last year.

    We set 12 from or two White Chinese females on 3/30 and have 10 growing nicely. :fl We will see what comes of them in just a bit! Always exciting and nerve wracking to incubate!
