    Heres a bad pic of her, my little miracle baby lol. Shes still a single child, no sign from her friends and I'm guessing the others won't hatch, but o well at least I got one [​IMG] I'm pretty sure its a little splash so i am really excited [​IMG]

    Even more crazy news lol! What a strange hatch this has been! I had 6 eggs left that are on day 32 today and I have decided its time to throw them out since all hope is lost...or so I thought! I go to take them out of the nice warm air when I hear a loud protesting cheap! What do you know, its rocking and cheeping non-stop now, but has still yet to peep! I'll keep everyone updated on how it goes!

    What kind of chicks are these, makes me wonder if I threw in the towel to early on mine. I waited until day 25.
    Was there a particular reason you held on so long, like did you see movement? Just really curious, LOL

    Anyway keep us posted.
    Oh! And congratulations!! [​IMG]

    Wow Alyssa. That is great news. That baby is not from my eggs is it? Have any of them hatched. I can't recall how long ago I sent them to you. Just curious. I have gotten lots of splash babies here. Keep us posted.
