    I think my egglets wait until I turn my back to make the first pip. No matter how long I look at them, they pip unseen. I would love to see one AS IT PIPS once. Just once.

    Have you ever actually witnessed the first pip as it occurred?

    I witnessed my first chick pip out of my first brood ever. I will never forget it. [​IMG] Momma won't, either. She wasn't very pleased with my handling them.
