    Oh,
    I can't believe I counted wrong! [​IMG]
    Lock Down should have been late last night! [​IMG]

    Wish me luck! and them!

    Quaillady,
    I see on button rocking, and looks like one may have pipped!

    About 10 quail are starting to rock too.

    It's soo cool to see that little egg jiggle around and know there's a little life about ready to come out!

    I'll keep you posted!

    No biggie, I often have coturnix and buttons hatch while still on the turner...doesn't hurt them as long as they don't get their little heads stuck [​IMG]

    Oh yes, make sure they don't get stuck! Sometimes I find chicks riding the turner [​IMG]

    Hi Everyone!

    Well, no turner at the moment , did it by hand. Getting their heads stuck sounds terrible , but I had to chuckle at the same time. And had to laugh at "riding the turner".

    Thanks ladies!

    Pollo Loco~ Glad you had a good hatch!

    I had the date written down as to when set, but somehow miss counted hatch day. [​IMG]

    Missi!
    Good morning! Your an early bird.[​IMG]

    I'm very excited! Our mailman was ROUGH on these, so I'm so happy to see some pulled through!

    Well...
    We have 3 pips this morning!
    And no, I did not get up this early to check on them! [​IMG]

    O.K.! I did stay up kinda late starting at the incubator though.[​IMG]
    Does the watched pot never boils apply here? [​IMG]

    Hubby pulled a 12 hr night, so he's just getting home.

    Back for a few hrs of sleep for me.!

    I hope you all have a great morning!

    I get up at 5:30 a.m. Monday thru Friday [​IMG] Gotta be at the office which is ACROSS TOWN at 8 a.m.! [​IMG]

    On weekends I typically get up early, check my email, FB & forums & watch the news until my eyelids get heavy again & then hop back in to bed for another couple of hours [​IMG] Unless I have some kind of wildlife photography outing (we meet just before dawn), fishing or shelling! [​IMG] Hope you are having a great morning, chickie! Can't wait until those babes start to emerge! [​IMG] LIFE!! [​IMG]

    I get up at 5:30 too, but was a day off thinking yesterday was Friday. [​IMG] My son doesn't have school today and sometimes that really messes me up. ROFL!

    My dogs think I should be up at 6:30 no matter what day it is so no sleeping in on weekends. lol.

    Still 3 pips today. But they have gotten a little bigger.

    The Coturnix should start pipping soon too!

    I hope you have a great day too!
