    I must tell on myself!! I had a few Orp/Rock cross eggs in the bator and on day 15 during candling, I dropped one of the eggs onto the truner, slipped right out of my hand and crashed [​IMG] I was so freaked out when I picked it up and saw that the egg was crunched in, from the middle to the bottom, I quick put it back in the turner and tried not to think about how I probably just killed the chick.. well day 18 came and the chick was still alive so into the hatcher they went..On day 20 I was given a special present.. A very pretty blue Orp/rock chicky [​IMG]

    Aw, that so rocks. After all the work and hope, how sad it would've been to lose the baby. Very cool! And gorgeous too!

    I see I am not the only one with butter fingers, I have done that several times and it breaks your heart.

    Step up come on don't be shy get your pre-pipping. come on step up guaranteed to make you hatch faster.
