    Pip this morning. . .
    Called my hubby this afternoon to check progress, and he said "my friend looked in at the eggs and nothing is going on."
    Bummer, but oh well.
    Got home a few hours later and the pipped egg was missing.
    Whuh?
    Closer look. . .
    I have a chick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It is a little blue silkie.
    Three more eggs pipped now. [​IMG]
    The little one is soooooooooooo cute [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    He looks very healthy and active and every time I look in looks up at me like "mommy?!"
    How in tarnation do you guys keep your hands out of the bator???? I want to take him out and snuggle him.
    He looks so lonely [​IMG]
    I am being good, though, I promise!
    I can't believe they are actually hatching! Right on day 21 to, so I must have done something right. . .
    More of these soon, I hope I hope. . .[​IMG]
    (I would have posted pics, but it is impossible through my homemade double screened plexiglass.)

    Congrats on your new baby's.....[​IMG]
    I got up this morning and went out to the coop bent down to my hens face and hear that little peep peep, A baby on Easter morning. But when I came home I found a dead baby outside on the ground : ( I am soo sad. It must have fallen out of the nesting box, The good news is another one had hatched and was doing well. Learned my lesson, she's in a dog kennel where it cannot get out. Have 4 more to go.[​IMG]
    Happy Easter
