    Wow, wasn't expecting them this soon. First one from pop to OUT: 14 minutes! Three more piped within two hours, one out, the other ones are rocking like crazy. When the first came out and sort of got her bearings, shed drape herself or cuddle next to whatever egg was near, take a short nap, holler, then back to start again. Hard to tell what other eggs are piping if they move em a bit. They are sure beautiful though!

    I'm speculating that since they spent a whole day in a mail truck (they were supposed to hold them at the post office and didn't) there was just enough proper warmth to start them.
