    Okay, the first one just busted out of it's shell!! I'm so excited my hearts racing and my hands are sweating. I really think it helps if you talk to them when they start coming out of the shell.

    Wow, that is sooo amazing to watch. I've been taking pics but I need the help of my DH to load them. I'm so happy and I can't wait for my daughter to get home from school to see it!! WAHOO!!

    I'll be adding pics later this evening. I have to give "Crunchie" a big "Thank You" she sent me 6 free Cuckoo Marans eggs because she wasn't sure if they were fertile. So I can offically tell her that at least 2 so far are fertile because I have another one pipping. Oh the excitement!!
