    Woke up to two more pips this morning! Egg #1 and 2 are pipped now too. Both of those have pipped just above the air cell line. Still no further movement from egg 3, not sure if all is well or not? [​IMG]

    egg #5 still has no signs of pipping yet. That is the only brown egg, others are white.

    hoipefully, they will start zipping soon!

    ok so I ran down and took a couple pics.

    I just LOVE sharing pics! sorry about the glare on this, I'm just using my camera phone and i don't want to take the top off, so the extra light in there is causing some wicked glare, did the best I could to minimize it.

    here are eggs 1 and 2 pipped.

    and here's a shot of egg 3, you can see the pip on the back and lower than the others!? not sure if that bodes well for chick#3, guess we'll see. Can you see the pip? You can also see egg #2 in this pic.

    Guess egg #5 must have gotten the word I was taking pics because I just went down for more coffee and look what I found...

    sneaky little bugger! I can hear a couple peeping too, not sure which ones though.

    seeing pics like this is great for us hatching virgins.
    Now the coop and run is virtually finished, I can get back to work on my incubator.
    Can't wait for my first time. I hope it'll be gentle with me. [​IMG]
    Hope they get out OK.
