    Wait until you hear peeping still in the egg & see the eggs move. I was so excited with my first incubator hatch I filmed it

    I love the new electric kettles. They DO boil when you watch them!!! [​IMG] I'm sure those hatching eggs HAVE to be the same. If she stares hard enough, they'll hatch for her. [​IMG]
