    I know! In about 45 minutes my Day 21 starts. I have three of the nine pipped and more rocking, but they wont come out! I usually have at least a couple hatched by this stage of the game.

    Peeps! Peeps, I heard peeps! Yipee!!! Yahoo!!! I'm so glad to know something is alive in the incubator. Go, babies, go.

    I have to go read the instructions on my Christmas camera so I know how to work it when they make it out of the shell.

    PEEPS!!!! [​IMG]
