    I'm technology-challenged. [​IMG] I'll have to ask my son to help me with pics.

    The 2 lavender orpingtons in the Brinsea are pipping. The 2 lavender orpingtons + 1 backyard-mix in the homebator have hatched.

    The backyard-mix chick hatched last night. It was desperately trying and almost succeeded in jumping out of the basket we had it in. We hadn't anticipated that, so quickly took the chick out of the homebator and put it in the Brinsea where it still is waiting for its friends to hatch. Poor thing is so lonesome.

    We had to quickly fix the basket situation in the homebator and replace the 2 LO eggs which had not yet pipped at the time. We woke up this morning to a darling chick and the other hatched at around 11 am.

    We're now just anxiously waiting on the 2 in the Brinsea. It's nerve wracking....why are they taking longer?! [​IMG]
