    Well my eggs are hatching so I figured I would grab the camera and get some pics.

    Here is the first one.

    If you look real close at the big tear you can see the tip if the chicks beak. This is an EE chick.
     
  2. Very cool. I really hope you have a great hatch and healthy babies.

    I don't know what this one is doing. It sure is peeping a lot. I know they do that but I have never had one as loud and distressed sounding as this one is. This one has me concerned. I don't like to interfere with the hatch but this little one may need some assistance.

    They do pip at the air cell - that membrane will be the outer membrane, the one just inside the shell - the air sac is between two membranes so there is still one to get through before the shell [​IMG]
