from pip to hatch was 8 grueling hours!! but when the first really started to rock and roll, there was about 8 of us that were able to witness it, it was awesome!!! was up until after 1am but the other 2 were in the "slow stage" but woke up this morning to 2 more!! these are from the eggs I put in from my birds and I have 2 cute little yellow fuzzies and one that is black and yellow (cute) these from my red & black stars. my dog is going crazy because she can hear them peeping and moving around and she can't see what's causing it!! LOL....how long before I put them in my rubber maid with heat lamp?
