    Sorry I can't post any pics until Thursday. But today at about 3:00 P.M. I was on the phone with Stacy (aka--gumpsgirl) and we were both rooting on the little chick. I was suppose to have been going to a birthday party but instead my hubby and kids went and I stayed home and sure enough...............my hubby forgets the b-day card and has to come back and while he is coming in the door I call for him and about that time..................the chick is born. We were all AAAAWWWWWWing and now we are waiting for chick #2. She has started to zip. Chick #3 is still pipping. This is all really funny because day 21 is tomorrow and the pipping started last night.
    Oh, well, if you haven't incubated a fertile egg before, you really need to. It's so exciting. Thanks Stacy for the eggs, if you hadn't given them to me I could have never experienced such a wonderful thing.

    Thanks again.

    UPDATE::: 2nd chick was born shortly after 6:00 P.M. and is so cute. I will not be able to post pics until Friday. I am borrowing it from a friend and cannot get it until then. Shucks.
