    I candeled 2 of them and definitley saw movement in 1. I didn't want to disturb all of them. I am so close! How early can they hatch? OMG I don't think I can wait until Monday. Let's hope all goes well.[​IMG]:fl

    I saw that no one else has answered, so I decided to! [​IMG]

    Congrats on the movement in 1 one the eggs! That's wonderful to hear! [​IMG]

    If temp. and humidity has been steady for most of the hatch(since high temps. can cause early hatches and lower temps can cause later hatches), the eggs should start pipping and zipping around day 20-22. [​IMG]

    Good luck! [​IMG] [​IMG]
