    I never thought I would be this happy over something like this. She is being a wonderful mama. Talking to the baby and being very gentle. 3 more eggs to hatch today marks 21 days 20180328_180802.jpg

    Yesterday marked 22 days out of 4 eggs she has hatched 3 but the 4th one she has left 2 different times when I see this I give it to her and she will push it under her belly, but I am not sure if it will hatch since she left it the weather here is between 70-80. She is taking very good care of her new babies....just wondering how long you guys think I should leave the other egg.
