    The first eggs from my own flock just pipped. There's 2 little black tailed buff japanese bantam eggs in there. They are a day early so I'm not expecting them to hatch too quickly. I moved my button quail cam over there so I can watch them from class.

    I can't see the other egg as well, does it have a pip? I wish the second egg was in the same position or place as the first one. (So I could watch that one too)[​IMG]

    Either the cam or the computer I was using at class froze when the first one pipped. I opened it again at 7 and around 7:15 (central time here) the first one rolled back on camera before finishing pushing out of it's egg. I don't see pips on the 2nd one. I'll reposition the camera for tonight in case it does hatch.

    The other chick didn't make it. Never even pipped the membrane. I actually think it died before it got the chance. The egg smelled rather rotten. I did candle them both alive on day 18 though and the other one hatched on day 20 yesterday. It must have been in bad shape then and died shortly after. I put the lone chick in with the few day old button chicks and it's quiet. Camera is back on my older buttons until I find a better way to attach it to the small brooder with the babies.
