    Mama is hatching eggs for me...yesterday was day 19 and they started pipping...the first egg had blood on shell (which I've heard is normal) this morning she was 75% out of shell but dead...she looks under developed and the yolk didn't fully absorb...now the others are pipping/zipping...I'm nervous no one will make it...should I relax? Lol easier said than done!
