    Ohhh makes me want mine to hurry up....I got until the 26th [​IMG]
    Also, How do you know exactly where they will pip, today at 3pm marks day 12 and I can clearly see the air cell, but I am unsure of how to determine where they will start exiting the shell..

    A black spot or two on a Texas A&M is quite common. When I first saw it I was hoping it was a sexing assist but no. I will have to sort them out at 8 weeks

    The pip is normally just above the start of the air cell.
