    Ugh!!!!! My chicks are early! Shouldn't be until Saturday! First one to pip was Sunday night couldn't get out....I helped (slowly). No bleeding...looked good....found his legs etc. Yesterday not as responsive..tried a little sugar water....he/she didn't survive! #2, 3,4 all pipped yesterday morning around 5:00 am....last night around midnight 3 and 4 progressing nicely. #2 had made very little progress but was cheeping and still trying! Got up today to 3 and 4 cruising around!!!!!!! But #2 dead in shell! I had to open the egg up.....to check for an obvious problems.......nothing!!! I realize things happen but had to complain for just a moment! Now back in to watch the pip from noon today! Maybe this one will kick some egg shell butt!!!!
