    AND NOW THE FUN BEGINS!!! Be careful because this is totally addictive!! My first pip too about 28 hours of pure agony. Maybe your baby will be more anxious to enter this world.

    A second egg has pipped! [​IMG] I'm so eggcited!! My first hatch was a disaster (4 eggs quit around day 8 and 4 fully developed, but never hatched) and I contemplated giving it up. BUT, everyone here encouraged me to try again so, I gave in and put 6 more eggs in a new & improved bator. Around day 12 I candled the eggs and two were clear, so I tossed them. Now I have two of my four eggs that have pipped. Come on little chicklets!!![​IMG]
