    I finally see a pip, and on day 24! What nerve these little fuzzy butts have. I had all but givin up. I don't know what went wrong, but atleast 1 of the 2 eggs wants to hatch. Just wanted to share the news since it made my day!

    I am sooo happy for you! I gave up on day 22 and wish I hadn't, accidently killed one while checking on them.

    I was going out to open them up to see if I could figure out what went wrong. When I pulled the first one out I saw the pip and almost dropped it! Glad I was working yesterday so I wasn't tempted.

    I took a couple of pics, the little one's been working all day with very little progress. I still can't believe it's gonna hatch. The second pic is the first little pip of the second egg, if you can see it.[​IMG] [​IMG]
