    I went to check on my eggs before jumping on the treadmill and I saw lots of rocking and heard lots of chirping. I went back after my run and saw TWO PIPS on my silkie eggs. There is a lot of rocking from the other eggs and more chirping. Tonight is the beginning of day 20.

    This is my second hatch attempt and at day 18 all my eggs (11) had moving babies.

    I am so freakin excited I am not sure how I am going to sleep tonight.

    [​IMG] Tomorrow is day 20 for me too, but no pips yet, but all 6 eggs had wiggly babies in them on day 18! [​IMG]

    Good luck, keep us posted on how you hatch is going, and once they hatch we "require" pictures, LOL!

    I just checked and I have a second pip.

    I Too stayed up all night with my first hatch, I'm on my 4 hatch in about 2 months now, and I no longer stay up all night, but I do check on them if I wake up in the middle of the night, then if one is zipped and close to hatching, I will stay up until it does. LOL it's still sooo exciting. And I know if my Muscovy Duck hatches I will be up all night with it, also I have 25 Button quail eggs going in on friday, and I'm sure I will be up all night when those begin hatching! [​IMG]
