    I just heard a PEEP, the first PEEP. Too quiet to be have pipped the shell yet, but someone just pipped their aircell and took that first breath of life.

    Congrats!! I'm waiting on the exact same thing, right this moment. It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one poring over their incubator tonight. All the world over, there are chicken fanatics doing the same thing, wondering at the fuzzy new life about to break free.

    Heard a piece of shell hit the wire. Someone pipped a shell.

    The bator is beside the bed, so I get to listen all night. [​IMG] I have insomnia and don't sleep anyways. At least I have a reason to be awake.

    I am more excited about this hatch then any other. Not sure why, but I am really excited for some of the 9 eggs to hatch.
