    After working a 12 hour nite shift, I came home to a pipped peeping egg!!!!! She kept right at it, and finally stumbled out; soooo cute. My first hatch baby. Pictures will come soon.
    Question, the sibling egg was moving around this morning, then not moving tonight. When should I worry? Karen

    Oh that's great! Congrats on the new baby. I wouldn't worry to much the other one is probably resting.

    Are these my Suede/Caroline babies? Awesome! My very first hatch, one fiesty little girl pipped and zipped in 15 minutes, a full day early. She was alone for 8 hours before she got a playmate.

    Cynthia, These are the polish chicks, started with 4, 2 quitters, one hatched, one waiting.
    Yours were just put in the hatcher, today was day 18. I think you sent me 9 eggs, one was clear, I have 8 left, all looked good from the last candling, 3 days ago. I am excited! Karen

    Cynthia, one of Suede's eggs, well I coulda sworn it was moving this morning, but I was probably hallucinating, LOL. I guess you can talk yourself into anything. Karen
