    This is my first hatch..My last one was a "learning experience" that didn't hatch... I am so glad I tried again and didn't give up on hatching in the incubator.. I've got 7 Ameracaunas (bantams) in there and 3 have pipped and am SITTING ON MY HANDS!!! This is such a test in patience and I am doing everything I can to not stare for hours on end in the window......[​IMG]

    Update: 3 out and 2 more pipping..This is so fun!!

    Congrats! I was so excited when I heard that first peep! I kept staring at the egg waiting for it to pip. [​IMG]

    How exciting!!! [​IMG]

    I love hearing that first peep! It makes my heart start racing and I can't quit looking in the bator!

    Congrats!!! [​IMG]
  4. i had many "learning experiences". It is so heartwarming when you have success. It is cool how they chirp once they've pipped into the air cell. i like to chirp back at them. [​IMG]

    Good luck with your hatch!

    I'm so hard-of-hearing that I probably won't hear a thing!

    Probably a blessing in disguise! [​IMG]
