    Well, we are up to 4 pips and the first has progress just a very small amount. These babies seem to be taking forever!! When in reality it hasn't even been 12 hours [​IMG]

    Baby no 1 is here. It is a naked neck and looks primarily yellow, but it might have some black feathers in there too. It is a LOUD chirper!!

    All four of the other pips are progressing at the same time!!! The other one in there just woke up and has started chirping really loudly again and it is like all the other 4 are anxious to come out all of a sudden.
