    We set 12 eggs (a mix we got from a friend) 21 days ago and today my daughter noticed the first ever pip. Nine of the eggs are in lockdown and we are on day 21 with a pip. Excitement around our house. [​IMG] My kids ages 11 and 8 went running to the garage to get Dad who confirmed the pip. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now the real waiting begins. [​IMG]

    congrats on you first hatch it is an exciting thing [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] and it is a good teaching tool for your children. I am on my 5th hatch now and we just got our first pip this morning and we have one chirping back at us and i can tell you that every hatch is just as exciting as the first. Are your children glued to the incubator?
