    That's great news, congratulations!!!

    When are they due to hatch?

    Also, aside from hearing them, how can you tell that all seven have pipped internally?

    Quote:They're actually due to hatch tomorrow night to Thanksgiving Day morning. I can tell they've internally pipped because I can see their beaks in the air cell.

    So you're taking the "lockdown" rules a little less literally than I am?

    I've been sitting on my hands, trying not to candle my eggs, and you're making it very difficult!!
