    Just kidding [​IMG] I'm so excited that I have to get a better response or I'm gonna go CRAZY!!!
    I went to town to get the bator from my friend for the duck and goose eggs I got today. I was going to use the incubator that my buttons are in, since I figured they would be done hatching. Of course they weren't.

    So I get back home with the borrowed bator and go to check the bator with the buttons. The temps have been a bit wacky ever since I took the turner out. I was looking in there and noticed a broken egg!! [​IMG] My first thought was one had blown up, but on closer inspection, I saw a little yellow button in there!! [​IMG] About 15 minutes later there was another one!! [​IMG] Now, maybe 20 minutes later, and there is ANOTHER one!! [​IMG]
    Plus there are at least 2 more pips that I can see!!! [​IMG]

    I know you guys would be more excited for me!!! I have 2 yellow and one that looks brown so far!! [​IMG]

    Nah, they wanted to make me go get the other one for nothing!! That's ok, the one I borrowed is almost brand new, whereas the one the buttons are in is old and the thermostat seems to be going out. But they are hatching!!! I hope there is a box full when we get up in the morning!!

    I'm not sure if Mrs AK has whites?? It may be a silver, since they (there are 2 [​IMG] ) have what looks like darker heads? It could be their itty-bitty eyes though!

    And I could kick my son right now!! We were looking to see if there were more zipping, and he was walking around the bator and KICKED IT!!!! [​IMG] And there was one starting to zip too!! AGH!! Plus one that I saw that was pipped is still pipped, probably thanks to MY DAD kicking it!!! OMG!!! Why can't they be CAREFUL???
