    [​IMG] [​IMG] I put 5 eggs in my 'bator after my roo died and have really been holding my breath that they would hatch. Today is day 20 and 2 are at the pip stage and 1 wiggles a little. I'm so excited, and now I have to leave for work and be gone for thirteen hours. [​IMG] How will I ever stand it not knowing what's going on?!!

    Oh well I'll keep you posted and I'll get pics maybe later.

    my day was way to long lol. I'm so tired.

    I had 2 hatch, but one died. The one that is alive is black with fuzzy feet. I'm sure the mother was my dark brahma and I know the father was my blue cochin. I will get pics tomorrow I'm so tired and he's sleeping peacefully.

    I have 2 more piped and one that is peeping in it's shell, but no piping yet. I hope I have surprises when I get up in the morning. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] 2 more hatched and they look like they are going to be silver. I think they have feathers on there feet too. I know the one yesterday does because he fliped on his back while I was peeking in the window lol. I have one more that is piped. I have another day at work(not as long). I am hoping that he is hatched and dry by the time I get home. Then I will get pics. I just don't want to open the cover and I don't think the pics will turn out through the window.

    I can't wait to show them off.
