    A watched egg.........OMG YES they do!!!! I just got a pip!!! My babies are coming!!! [​IMG] Honestly, I am more excited over my mutts than my BLRW. LOL These are all from my own chickens and I am going to get babies from my oldest son's tiny little BTWJ and her Bantam EE boyfriend. I just can't wait to see what they look like! The pip is in one from my standard EE hen with the same little EE roorunt. [​IMG] YEAH FOR BABIES!!!! Now, if the power stays on we will be doing alright. We have snow and freezing rain predicted for the next two days and since the bad storm with the 9 day outage, the power is iffy at best. It goes out a lot more than ever before. [​IMG] soooooooo [​IMG] these babies get here alright.

    I still haven't recovered from my lack of sleep waiting for my one little duck to hatch. From pip to out of the egg, it took 3 FREAKING DAYS!!!
