    How thrilling...I'm jealous too! [​IMG]
    YES...best advice is to SIT on your hands...do not sit by the bator for hours 'waiting'...it is just too tempting to open it up. My DH has to lock me out of the bator room! LOL

    It's like Christmas, you have no clue what is in there (boy, girl, quality, color) and you just want them to all come out of their little shells NOW!

    When I heard my first pip, I was so shocked I almost dropped the egg.
    My experience, be patient.
    Congrats!

    After my first hatch (a month ago) I had bruises on my lap from my elbows from sitting with my face glued the incubator for an entire day! It was amazing! Have fun and enjoy every minute.
