    I'm still waiting on mine, Lanna. Good that you're on your way now! I have some lazy chickies here, not like the Ameraucanas that always start early. Well, I'm only halfway through Day 20, so they aren't exactly late, but now I'll be up all night.

    I have two more pips this morning and the first one to pip is making it larger. At least I have something to do when it's 14 degrees out with snow on the ground.

    Yep, when I quit watching is when they make their moves. Something along the lines of "a watched pot never boils"...." a watched egg never pips!"

    I just got 2 babies that came out. I stare at the egg and say hatch in my mind and they do. Try it. It might work? I hope ya both have some cute healthy babies [​IMG]
