    I've got about 3 doz. of Dipsydoodledoo's Ameraucauna and Frizzle eggs in my bator. 1 Frizzle hatched overnight...I came downstairs this morning and found it out already! No noise overnight like when they usually hatch. This one was fast and quiet! I have 7 more pips in the blue eggs as of this minute. I am so psyched....I've wanted some Ameraucaunas and now it looks like I'll get some... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    4 babies are out and 7 eggs are pipped as of a min. ago. They are so cute! Blues and blacks so far... Adorable! I'll take pics when more are hatched and they are fluffed up. Do Ameraucaunas have cheek muffs (tufts?) when they hatch?

    [​IMG] Awwww! I can't wait to see pics of them!
     
  6. Hi Lisa! Great job incubating!
    Some will hatch with obvious beards/muffs and some not so much til later (I don't know if that's the way they all are, just the ones here).
    Can't wait to see pics!
    Good luck with the rest!

    update: 6 1/2 chicks are hatched with a bunch more pipped!! This is so much fun- no interventions at all yet...a day early for all of these ones too. No problems getting out of their shells, they pip, make that pip a big hole, then zip around the shell like little racecar drivers, then pop out and dry off pretty quickly! This is the easiest hatch I've had this year, so far!
    pics soon....[​IMG]

    ETA: 7 are out and 5 are working hard to get out by morning.... [​IMG]
