    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]

    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]
