    Ok, two have hatched and one has stuff that is connecting his bottom to the shell. Should I do something?

    Sitting on my hands! My grandfather came (age 81) to see them and he said it was fine too. Grew up on a farm. He's as excited as we are.

    Yes...give him time...
    My own Mother found an egg in our shed and she came 'whooping' and hollering like a kid with that egg...it was so fabulous and my children cracked up laughing at her excitement!! [​IMG]
