    I've got 2 of the cutest little Serama chicks [​IMG] that have just hatched this afternoon. [​IMG] They are still wet! I have another egg that appears to be zipping. I'm just hoping that my son can get home from school in time to see it hatch! I have 7 other eggs that aren't doing anything yet, but there's still hope, right? Today around noon was "technically" the start of Day 20. I will post pics later. Got to get back upstairs and check on them! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Here's my tiniest of the 3:

    Wonder what color these will end up?

    Quote:Cool! And you're the one using the electric skillet, right? Keep us updated on how that goes! I told my hubby about it tonight, and he said, you know what, I think we have two of those out in the garage. Then he started telling me about this food/hotdog warmer that he can get from work if I thought we could use that. hehehe......I have no clue if we can use it, I'm just excited that he's getting into this;)

    Quote:Actually, the 3rd one just zipped and hatched in the last hour, so yes, he watched the whole thing! He was amazed and kept saying "Watch this, you'll miss it, watch!" [​IMG]
