    I have 5 pips out of 7 eggs!! Two more pipped when I was in the shower. The very first one put his beak through this morning around 9am.

    They're at 70% humidity, a little bit of peeping now and then, too. My daughter gets home from school in 2 hours. She'll be so excited!

    LOL, it just looks pink. I sent that pic to my friend at work and he said "You colored your hatching eggs???" Hehehe!! No, it's just your regular RIR egg. It's a lovely shade of taupe. [​IMG]

    My daughter took her tracfone with her and just sent me a text, she's on the bus on her way home. She can't wait to get here!

    lol well good hahah i dont feel so cluless then hahhahahaha. well congrats tell your dughter i said congrats on the new babies. i cant wait for mine even though im pretty sure i only have one left but oh well. im considering trying to make my own incubator through the post miss P put up and see if i have better luck. the one i won now is a cheap littl eplastic dome looking thing that has been nothing but a waste of money.

    So I have pips but no action. Is that normal? The one with his/her beak out is still exactly the same. When might they start actually hatching?
