    After Giblet yesterday, my first Kiki hatched!! Its all black. I needed to help it at the end. I guess my humidity wasn't high enough as its membrane had dried out and it was stuck all over the chickie. Don't think it would have made it out if I hadn't helped. It was pretty sticky. Its peeping loudly know, Giblet thinks its crazy. My inly other Kiki egg hasn;t even piped yet. Last time I looked it was still alive so I'll give it a few more days.

    Is the baby still yelling? Maybe it needs some electrolytes or something. Good luck with the fuzzy-butts.

    Well, after nap time, both are yelling. The older of the 2 has found food and water all ready. The little one is just loud. I did give them both a drop of poly vitamins since the little one had such a hard time getting out of the shell earlier. The bigger one is looking at me like it wants me to hold it. DH had it in the bed this morning. I think he started something.

    In the BED? Oh, my. I'd get shot. That's funny.
