    Today is (was) Day 10 on our bator eggs, and my daughter and I got up the nerve to candle them again. With all that happened this weekend, we weren't expecting much.

    However, one little one decided he/she needed to cheer us up from inside the shell and began doing a little jig and flipping and kicking around for us! Oh! How exciting! Not only to see the life growing, but moving! We also saw this same chicks heart beating. How precious. My daughter cried and I cried, but this time the tears weren't so sad. I just had to share.

    4H Mom, I've been off the computer for a couple days, but you've been on my mind.

    I'm so glad you had a "happy feet" moment. [​IMG]

    We are quite cautiously optimistic. I guess the only good thing to come of the fire is that DH says we (my daughter and I) can keep whomever we want of the hatches (if they hatch) and THAT is not something he would normally agree to. [​IMG]
