    Did your family get to see the wiggling? I know when I showed my son and grandchildren they wanted to watch them all the time. LOL

    That's so great that things seem to be going well!! My family disn't really clue in until they saw all the wiggling around too and now they get so excited every time I candle the eggs. Can't wait to hear how your hatch goes!! [​IMG]

    oh well my children are all grown and out of the house-- I will definitely show them and the grandkids when they visit whether they want to see or not! It has to make an impression on them--
    now for the long loooooong days of waiting!!! [​IMG]
