    OMG, I am so excited, and drugged up and how will I ever stay awake! My hay fever is killing me and I just took two benadryl, was gonna go for a nap.

    Looked in the bator and one has PIPPED! Cant tell which one it is, Cyn, but its one of yours, I will see if I can figure it out. We are still on Day 20, but 6ish hours from the start of Day 21!


    Ok, I peered and was able to see the end, its one of Lexie's! Its actually pipped halfway thru, it must have started on the bottom side of the egg, sneaky devil!

    Jill that is fantastic. go ahead take a little nap, it may take awhile and you will have time to watch the others emerge. Tonight will be very productive I bet. It always happened that way for me. One would pip and it took forever but by morning I would have lots of babies.

    Don't worry about the feet. My friend Lynn in CA hatched one of Lexie's. Her name is Lizzie and her feet are HUGE, LOL. After it's completely dried off in a day or so, we'll look at the headspot and the coloring and see if its a boy or a girl. Hawkeye and Lex produce very strong babies with sweet temperaments, always have.
