I started out with 8 eggs. Tossed one at day 14, as it was clear with a blood spot. This is day 20 and two pipped about 2 hours ago and one more just pipped. The thing I am most excited about is that my 11 year old is sitting on a stool holed up in the laundry room. He is working on his homework right next to the bator ! He just came and said "Mom one of those funny looking green ones is pipping too !" Way to cute to see him so excited. He popped his head out and said "Mom I can see a little beak pounding on the shell !" He wasn't home to watch the other hatch a few weeks ago as he was with his Dad. He is sooooo interested in the whole process.
