    Mama just called and informed me that three of our eggs are pipping. I'm at a part-time job and have to rely on Mama and Misty. I asked them to get pics. Mama said that they were chirping so loud she expected to see chicks running around. Home made bator and first attempt at hatching a few, Jumpin Gee Willikers this is excitin! The temp is holding steady and we are trying to get the humidity up to at least 70%. I removed a slab off the styrofoam section in the water tray and plugged every hole except one by the fan so as to keep some fresh air in there. Well now all that is left is the waitin I guess.
