    ok here's a recap:

    2double yolkers
    1.) peeping inside shell (no pips) - also tapping rythmically

    2.) taps back when I tap on the shell, didn't hear any peeping

    Gotta go to work...if they hatch while i'm gone and I don't get it on video, I'm gonna die!

    Do I need to bring out the duct tape? Didn't I say you shouldn't be touching the eggs till day 22 to give them the best chance to absorb what they need to survive and not compromise the humidity on the last days of incubation?​

  7. Good luck Rebecca! I don't blame you for trying. I agree that from a scientific perspective it is worth trying. Clearly you will take great care of them, I mean, look at that little chick in your avatar. [​IMG]
