    Congrats!! [​IMG]

    Now you're going to wait a LONG time for it to hatch. . . . [​IMG] At least you got some early pippers though. My Black Coppers always begin pipping late day 21 or day 22, and hatch from day 22-23.

    Another pip, this time from my millie fluer d'uccle eggs. I have 6 marans and 5 millies. They were from a total 20 eggs , and the rest didnt make it through candling. The Marans I left as I couldnt see through the shells, so I kept them all. They were shipped so Im excited they have gotten this far...[​IMG]) Oh and I got the humidity up by closing the vent a bit, I have a Brinsea 20 and it went back up to 65.

    Way to go Crazy4hens! I am excited with you.

    We had rocking going on today the you would have thought the earth moved![​IMG] We, staff and kids alike were cheering and yelling! Woo Hoo. A few more moved and wiggled. No pips yet today before I went home. Waiting and waiting. I gave them permission to hatch tonight while school is out, but asked if they could wait that would be better! Everyone wanted to watch the eggs so the teacher decided to give designated 1/2 hour time slots to every kid to "Watch" the eggs. Some were so cute - just sat and watched them all. Got my little LED light and would peak around. Others were not so excited about the job, but did like the fact that they could sit and not have to work for 30 minutes.
    We have called this event "The Great Egg Watch of 2010". We then decided that everyone could pick a different egg and have their own to be special-in hopes that their egg hatches out first so ... you know there will be a winner! Not sure what to get to celebrate or give them just yet. But as I left everyone is hopeful for tomorrow as it is Day 21! [​IMG]
