    seriously... I stare at my eggs in the hatcher and can swear I see them moving. No one else can but me. I think I am willing them to move. Or I have lost my mind! [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL, you are probably really seeing them move. I thought the same thing, but the ones I thought I saw move out of the corner of my eye, were always the first ones to pip and hatch. So I think I was just focused on one egg, and seeing the other move with my peripheral vision. So I was never sure I saw it, but in retrospect think it really did. LOL!

    They move for me, too! We can't both be crazy....unless staring at eggs counts as going crazy![​IMG]

    Ok add to that... If I listen hard enough I can actually hear rocks peeping. Lol
    I swear I hear faint little peeps. Then I will think "did I really hear that or did I imagine that I did?"

    Quote:Lol marans colored rocks. So dark I couldn't see movement when I candled before lockdown.
    These rocks if they were to hatch would be lovely solid blue marans. Sigh... Lol

    Nice!! I love blue Marans.
    Guess I should have put a smiley by my previous question so you knew I was being funny! But you got it anyway. [​IMG]

    Good luck with hatching - it sounds like there are some there just waiting to bust out. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    The first time I heard an egg peep in the incubator I thought I was imagining things, too. Noop, not imagination- and isn't it thrilling?!?!?
