    Our first baby hatched at 1:35am after 9 long hours from the first pip! AND it was Lucky (The one I dropped) [​IMG] I am amazed! The next one is going to hatch any minute! JJ and I are the only ones still up but we just couldn't go to bed until Lucky was hatched and now JJ wants to wait for "Pip" Kyle's will likely be next but I don't think I can manage to stay up for that one [​IMG] I will post pictures later this morning [​IMG] Still 4 more to go too! Kyle called tonight from camp to find out if his had pipped or hatched yet. This batch was from the watchagotswap from Wildwoodchickens- Thank You Wildwood!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well we have had 4 of the 8 hatch, we had one that pipped and started to zip but didn't make it [​IMG] There are still 3 that haven't done anything but I have decided to wait until tomorrow before giving up on them just incase. The 4 that hatched are doing great and now are in the brooder, I will try to take a picture of them and get it posted so you all can see them [​IMG]
