    Omg! They are rocking and peeping like crazy! One has piped already! I'm so crazy excited. These are some mille d'uccle eggs from my little trio. We put 13 eggs in and all 13 developed. I'm so proud. How long till the pipped one hatches?

    It can take 24+ hours before hatching. I don't want to rain on your parade but now is the time of Patience!!!! Sometimes it is quicker. Just don't open the bator and all will be well! Good hatching vibes to you and your little ones!

    Just an update: I have 2 hatched and doing fine and then there is a 3rd that i think my mom helped hatch this morning who looks really weak. I put him on a warm wet napkin but he just moved off. The 2 healthy ones were running around knocking all the other eggs around. 3 of the eggs have pips so i was afraid they might be hurting their siblings. Here are pics of the new babes:

    ok out of 13 eggs 11 so far have hatched. [​IMG] 2 died just out of the shell which from what i've read is normal. One got taken by the cat (she reached through the cage around the brooder and stole it). However i am still happy to say we have 8 happy little fuzz butts! We dropped one of the eggs about 5 days ago and we're sure it wasn't going to hatch but it did! The chick is bald (no fuzz on the top of its head). Has anyone ever had this happen? Will it grow feathers? The rest are all fine.
    EDT: the weak one is the one from the dropped egg. My mom didn't help him, one of the other ones is super slow to stand too. And the weak one is the bald one. I'll get some pics soon.

    We dropped one of the eggs about 5 days ago and we're sure it wasn't going to hatch but it did!

    I did the same thing! Dropped the egg on the counter top yesterday and cracked it. I thought I was going to cry! Candled last night and it's still moving, so maybe it will still hatch. I've got my fingers crossed.


    Congrats on your hatch. Sounds like you've done a great job. [​IMG]
