Wow! How awesome! Yep, as I always say, time flies when it isn't your hatch, LOL. Does seem like I just sent them to you. How many do you have that made it this far, Kathy?

I'll be anxiously watching and waiting with you. She's sending some eggs to me tomorrow and I need to do something to occupy my time while I wait. I hope you'll post lots of pics for me to ooh and ah over.

I have 3 pips on the BRs, 2 Mandy's and 1 Amanda (is Amanda and Mandy the same girl?). No action yet on the blue orps.

As of day 20, I have 2 BRs hatched, and 3 more just about to pop out...none of the blue orps have done a thing. They are lazy bums!!

Okay, its official, 5 barred rocks out. I had to move the very first one out of the hatcher; he (he?) was running around pecking all the new borns. What a bully! So he and the 2nd oldest are in the brooder already. I have 3 newly wet babies in the hatcher, one BR egg left, with no action yet. And of course the blue orps are hiding.....

The Orps just want to make a grand entrance and not share the spotlight with anyone else, LOL. Most of the time, one will pip right as Day 21 is starting and the last one hatch as Day 22 is starting. Seems to be the pattern when I hatch them at home.
