    I have 3 pipped Rouen eggs out of 5 as of 9:00 p.m. yesterday evening. How long does it take from first pip to actual hatch? I think I read somewhere that it can take up to 48 hours. Am I remembering right? Thanks [​IMG]

    Here's our new babies, all 5 hatched fine!! We'll 99.9%! LOLOL

    Thanks Fay! I'm just trying to make sure I'm around with the kids to see the actual hatch. This is very exciting for them! [​IMG]

    Just in case anyone is interested, I have put a web cam in the bator, and it's live streaming the pips now. Not the best picture, but the best I could do at this time. I have 2 big pips in two of the eggs and 2 smaller pips in two other eggs and nothing in the last egg, YET! So pretty good out of 6 original eggies, 5 are doing their thing, (one quitter during the beginning of the second week). OK here's the link:[​IMG]
