    Ive got a Buckeye pipping a day early!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I decided to check one more time before I headed off to bed and was amazed to see one pipping. This is one of Buckeye Daves. I wasnt even expecting any till after 9:00 tomorrow night (that will be 21 days).

    I took a pic but Im not sure how it turned out.[​IMG]

    Finally computer time...hubby said I was growing roots so he's been keeping me busy lol

    I took a few pics along the way and now have time to do an update. This was the second to pip but first out sorry about the flash

    Her are the first four seeming to do well other than a little sleepy

    Heres one doing a pose

    And the next two pipping

    However I am starting to get a little concerned the six others having started to pip yet. When I moved them on day 18 all looked good. Hum after just looking at the calander I had to remind myself that today is still day 21 the others started early. Hopefully they will be alright.[​IMG]
