    My chicks are hatching! [​IMG] im so excited, i just cant contain myself![​IMG]

    4 out of 11 started pipping, i noticed them about 5pm (EST). its 10:00 now, and although they are wigglin' and peeping, im worried that the two that have only cracked the shell, and not actually made a whole are having trouble.

    its normal, right? i just need to chill, right?

    It can take them 24 hours from pip to hatch. So, don't start to worry yet, they have only just begun (sounds like a song....). [​IMG]

    Congratulations! Make sure to post pictures of your new babies when you can.
