    I was candling last nite and heard a peep, low and behold a Orp eggs was pipping. I had the hatcher ready so I transfered the egg. For some reason I didn't have a date on this one. Continued candling and found one more that looked like it had pipped the internal membrane. I tapped and it tapped back so I put it in the hatcher too. I just dont' know how I did that. I have a group to move over tomorrow nite that I put in on the 14th.
    Long story short. One hatched and the other peeping but can't see and external pip yet.
    I moved some little silkies back in to be with them cause they were getting run over by the Orps in the other box. I will take pics when they dry off.
    I think I am overwhelmed with chicks a little bit.

    I keep wanting to order eggs from....well everywhere, but I keep telling myself to wait until the end of March. (That is when I get your eggs!) I know the wait will be worth it!
