    I have a chick that hatched this morning that is a maniac! ahahahah..........he is just walking all over and knocking the other unhatched eggs all over the place.......the other newly hatched one is a bit of a mover too, but not as bad as this first one. Is that normal???? and don't get me started on the constant peeping!

    Yup, sounds perfectly normal. Congrats on the new chicks. Don't open the bator and hopefully the rest will hatch just fine as well. Can't wait to see pics! [​IMG]
