    It's day 18 on my mutts and I really really need them to come out. Hahaha.

    I'm sitting on my hands.
    This morning i sat twelve in an egg carton,
    this is my first time attempting this,
    i hope it works as good as everyone else says it does.

    I just don't understand how they get out of their eggs like this! Someone explain. [​IMG]

    They zip around the egg and pop the top shell part off and then push out of the bottom part.
