okay of 8 eggs, one didn't make it out. biggest chick i've ever seen so maybe it just was too big to do anything other than a little zip. had i been paying attention maybe i could have helped it. oh well these things happen. anyway 6 are fine and i'm waiting on one more egg but i don't think it's gonna do anything. these were shipped eggs so i am very pleased with them. i'll get some pics up later. they are so fluffy and cute.
