    You guys are the third person that I told, The first was the ebay seller, the second was Dawn and Skip, They were my support persons, Last night at 1:15 AM my husband woke me up to tell me that one of the eggs cracked (pipped) This morning we woke up to one little furry butt.
    A short piece of membrane is stuck to her tail, she is wobbling around the bater sucking up all the humidity with her shell following her, pecking at the other eggs. Children are playing hooky today. My nine year old said that she will never forget this moment. My 15 month old grand daughter said baby.
    How much longer for the rest? And thanks for your support! [​IMG]

    Congratulations! I knew you would get a chick. As far as the others... who knows. I still have a bunch and started thinking maybe they won't hatch. But just a few minutes ago I saw a pip. So, who knows. This is the hardest part....waiting.

    Congrats again!
