    [​IMG] I bet not!!! I imagine I'll have my nose to the bator every couple hours! Even though I've been reading about how they can take days to hatch, teehee...

    They're cheeping so LOUD! Soooo cute:)

    It you cheep back at them it can encourage them to "get to business" and hatch quicker.

    Congratulations! I know I wouldn't be sleeping at all tonight! How Egg-Citing!

    My two banty chicks are out this morning! [​IMG] And, wouldn't you know it, the one egg I was wondering if it would even hatch was the first one out [​IMG] No sign of a pip last night either.
