    I have been pulling my hair out! [​IMG] Today is day 21 on my current hatch, and as of this morning no pips, no rocking, nothing. Finally 5 minutes ago I checked and there are at least two pips. I've been so worried that this was going to be my first complete failure. [​IMG]

    It's day 21 for me also. Our first one hatched at 1 a.m., second one was out by 11 a.m. and I'm doing my best to stay away from the bator...you know the saying "a watched pot never boils"...it isn't working too well, I just wanna keep watching...[​IMG]

    Congrats on those pokey little pips. [​IMG] They do choose their own time, don't they? Hang in there and good luck with your hatch. [​IMG]
