    My son's egg and 1 of the oegb eggs have started pipping.
    The other oegb egg I have seen rocking a little.

    Temp is between 99.6 and 100.0, and humidity is holding
    at 67%.

    1 oegb has zipped half way, son's has just completely pipped in the last few minutes and is zipping pretty fast.
    Still nothing from the other oegb, other than a couple of rocks last night.

    Will post pics later!

    Sounds like you're headed for a good hatch.

    Still nothing from the last egg

    OEGB hatched first and had a piece of shell stuck to him but it fell off.
    I had seen no movement from the mixed all day and was starting to wonder if something was
    wrong.
    At about 2:00, it finished pipping, zipped, and hatched all in about 20 minutes.

    I guess the chirping from the oegb got it going.
