    The next set of Bonnie's eggs was set to go into the hatcher Friday. 3 eggs were clear and never devloped. One lone egg went in.

    Last night about 11pm I went up to take a peek and it had a very tiny pip. Without a flashlight I would have never seen it.

    I woke up at 3 am and heard peep peep peep so I went up to see. I leaned over and peered into the incubator and was delightfully surprised to see this beautiful little splash looking around.

    So far Bonnie and Mosby have produced 3 splash and 1 blue. Fingers crossed. There are more in the bator to hatch next week.

    How wonderful! Bonnie and Mosby are sure producing a lot of pretty silver splashes! I can't wait to see them all feathered out. It's just absolutely adorable MissP! [​IMG]

    Oh, I am soooo envious [​IMG] Hopefully I will have my own different colors by the end of next week [​IMG] Your little one is gorgeous. I had one hatch myself...only one poor little thing. I put a mirror, water wiggler(it snuggles up to it) and a stuffed toy in with it. It talks to itself in the mirror but I can't wait to get it some companions. [​IMG]
