    After all of the wild temperature fluctuations and worry
    I came home to the sound of chicks peeping. There are 2 eggs that have pipped. One of them is zipping! I see a tiny beak stick out now and then.

    NEVER GIVE UP IT AIN'T OVER TIL IT'S OVER!

    Fri April 3 at 6:22 A.M. FIRST HATCH!!!!

    It was 86 to 92 for 36 hours.
    I can't wait to get home & see how the rest made out.
