    First egg pipped early this morning but now just setting still waiting on the others to pip. Waiting game just kills me. I am hoping for a good hatch but who knows can't count my chickens until they hatch. I had a 83% success rate on my first hatch do not know what I will have on this one.

    4 pips and look like they all put things on whole, frustrating. I got to be patient and just wait to see what does or doesn't happen.
