    They both hatched. Omg. So cute and so amazing. We let her sit in them for 2 days and she was doing a great job until one dell out of the nest I noticed when I got home this afternoon(nest is about 2 feet off the ground ) so we brought the peepers inside. Peeping like crazy even with their light on them lol. Ill post pics tonight. Thanks!
