Little Mandie baby Mandie and 3 call babies My mandie pair had not laid many eggs this year (their first spring). None of the eggs have hatched successfully til yesterday. It was 5 days beyond the hatch date, my friend (the old Rebel) and I decided to help it out of the egg. It had pipped and then nothing for 24 hrs. We slowly, throughout the day, helped it out. YAY!
