    Mine are due June 4th too! Last night I finished up a quail hatch, and decided to candle my Serama eggs and Cochin eggs, and to my surprise one of the Seramas was already in the air cell! For some reason I thought I was supposed to lock them down on Friday, so I did a calender count, and realized I was supposed to lock them down that night! So I did, and today I already have a pip!

    Congrats on your wiggly eggs, I would suspect you will have a pip in the next 24 hours or so, but don;t be surprised if they hold out on you.

    Quote:YAY FOR PIPS!!!!! [​IMG]

    I know that feeling, but you learn fast that those little fuzz butts are more resilient than you would ever imagine! Heck, about 10 days ago I dropped a goose egg I was putting into lockdown, and most of the shell broke off, leaving just the membrane, and the membrane tore in a few places making it bleed, but that was 1 of two babies that hatched, and the other one had sever deformities, but this little baby (Nickname crackers, because I cracked it's shell so bad) has quadrupled in size and is the cutest most loving baby I have ever hatched!


    can't wait for an update with a chick announcement!
