    I was so surprised at how quickly the "pip" became a "zip" and then a chick!! I missed the entire halftime show!! LOL!

    I can hear him from my office upstairs - cheeping downstairs - soooo cute!!

    It is going to be terribly hard to go to bed tonight, but I have commitments in the A.M. which I simply can't ignore - so who knows?? I'll either tear myself away from the bator and go get some sleep, or just show up half-aware to my projects in the morning.

    I had COMPLETELY forgotten about the "egg tooth" on top of the head; when did we learn that - elementary or middle school?? (I'm now 53). I was expecting the beak to set them free, and then I saw the egg tooth. Either that, or I've just hatched a unicorn!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] A unicorn duck, now that would be something else!

    The egg tooth is on the end of the beak, actually. It falls off after a few days. [​IMG]

    Congratulations!!! I know it is so exciting. I have only incubated 2 batches and I am now on my third. I think I am a hatchaholic already.
