    Well, 1st time incubator, with a homemade bator fashioned from Miss Prissy's, 11 eggs, and on day 20, 1 pip, then within 4 hours, 3 more pips, then 1 hour later, a zip, then a baby, then another zip, then another baby! Now, I have 2 babies, and one more zip!!! Woohoo!! From zip to baby on 1st egg, 25 minutes, on 2nd baby, 10 minutes!!! I'm sooooo thrilled!!! The kids are jumping up and down, and we all fight over the window of the bator!!! [​IMG]

    The first 2 are my frizzles
