    I just watched our first baby hatch...out of Lucky egg 13, which is HER name (lol little boost of positive thinking there!). I am crying [​IMG] It is just so amazing and I want to hold the little thing so much! I can't wait to get home!

    The photos and videos are great! My eggs are on day 10 now, I wish I could get such nice pics and video, but they all just come out blurry!

    Thanks everyone!

    The hatch is now complete. Took about 30 hours from the first pip to finish out the hatch. All came out perfect and without issue. They are drinking from a water bottle and have learned to eat!
