    Nevrmind the kids.... LOL !!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] Bad, Bad [​IMG]

    Somtimes you dont always hear peeping before they hatch, so if you dont hear anything dont worry !!!!

    Somtimes around day 19ish people start to hear and see the egg wiggle !!!!

    Dont forget.... KEEP THE BATOR CLOSED AFTER DAY 18 (I know its hard)

    Good luck [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
