    Yippee!! I've only had 1 hatch, the babies are 5 months old now. I felt like I gave birth to them myself I was so proud! (Still am!)

    Found out what "shrink wrapped" is the hard way. [​IMG] The two that pipped last night but didn't hatch out had only enlarged their shells a little by the time I got home from work today [​IMG] I could see them through the holes and they were breathing but not moving much. After another hour I couldn't stand it and helped them out, the membrane had glued their heads down to their shoulders so they never would have been able to get out on their own. I misted the bator really well and it softened enough that I could peel the membrane off.
