    The 21st day is ending and no pips yet. DH rigged up the video camera to the bator in a hole he cut, but plugged up and didn't use for the turner after all (too low). Here it is:


    Today, DH decided to candle since we hadn't seen any movement from the egg. The peep had expired sometime just after Day 18 or 19. We dont know why, just are very sad. At least she had a chance to live that she didn't have in a school trash can. It was NOT a Salmon Faverolle. It was black, I think a Cochin. Thanks to all of you for sitting watch with me.

    That's really very clever!

    I like the live-stream idea, too...imagine all of us sitting in front of the computers, watching an egg...

    Ah..the suspense....

    Oh speckledhen...I'm so sorry. I know how excited you were. What a shame. But your right, it had much more of a fighting chance with you then sitting cold in a dumpster. Sometimes nature just takes a different turn for whatever reason.
    You have to think that perhaps maybe it just had some sort of "birth" defect and nature being merciful sometimes, took over so it wouldn't have to live being sick.
    My condolences to you.
