    Since they have hatched, I think they deserve their own thread. [​IMG]

    I have five out of eight eggs that hatched last night and early this morning.

    Pictures in a bit. Just waiting on the last one to finish getting fluffy!

    Thank youfor the adorable pics. They are so adorable. But I have to ask. How did you sleep knowing they were hatching. I am on my 1st time. They are due on either the 20th or the 21st. I don't think I will be able to sleep knowing this is happening. LOl sound like a new mommy to be. [​IMG]

    Aw, how sweet! Congratulations! During my first ever hatch, I was up three days straight! I was wobbling and had to crash afterward, LOL.

    Otherwise I would have been wide awake.

    Keep in mind, that it can be HOURS between Pip and hatch. Patience will be a must.


    Good luck with your hatch! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Adorable chicks! I just went through my very first hatch too. They are so cute. One quick question, are you putting down any paper towels in the plastic tote you have them in? I would just so they have something to grip with their feet. What kind of chicks are they?

    Quote:Why be sorry? We were all new once too! In fact, I'm still relatively new!

    Just wait until you can hear them cheeping from inside the eggs!! Then you'll be really eggcited!!
