    Wouldn't you know, when I decided NOT to watch the hatcher all night long, my first Spitzhauben baby hatched all by itself [​IMG]
    2 others have pipped and I expect more will today, today is day 21 and these eggs are from okcarla !

    You're gonna love the Spitz's. All the kids call them Mohawks. We hatched
    ours from OKCarla too.

    Our Spitz rooster crowed this morning and woke up my wife. I'm so glad I left
    the tractor near our bedroom window. [​IMG] He still has that cute squeaky 12 week
    old crow. [​IMG]

    I can't wait for that first Spitzhauben crow! My 3 1/2 month old SLW just tried crowing this morning, pretty lame crow but it's a start!

    I love the first pitiful crowing. My Blue Andalusian has a 'cock-a' but no 'doodle-do'.
