    So it's Day 21 for me and I have a pip! I can see the little beak and hear the little fuzzy butt chirping. I want to intervene so bad and get him/her out. [​IMG] I know I shouldn't but it's just so tempting!

    don't, its just a pip. It takes a few hours before it begins to zip.

    Haha this is exactly what I needed! Thanks. I'll go over to a friends right now and stay away. I think it's because it's my first hatch, it's all so new to me and I just want the little chickie. [​IMG]

    No helping! Sit on your hands if you must. Helping at this point could actually kill the chick, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy listening to the peeping! [​IMG]

    Read Atlas Shrugged until it's over! Here is your "Assignment" to get you through hatching:

    Read Atlas shrugged, and make journal entries after each chapter about what happened in the chapter you just read, how that reflects the philosophy of the author, how long it took you to read, and how your chicks are doing! [​IMG]

    Good luck!

    Go mess with your videocamera for a while and make sure you know how to load it to YouTube, so that when it starts to zip you can get us a video of it hatching!
