    I have 14 Speckled Sussex eggs hatching, and one of them is very noisy and actively zipping it's shell. They are right here beside me, and I can hear it chipping and chriping away! [​IMG]

    In the time it took to download a pic, it is almost zipped half way around! It won't be long for this little one!

    And the Nelda Squad makes its appearance! How long has it been since you hatched Lizzie? Wasn't she the last one?

    Yep, Lizzie was my last baby! Interesting that all 3 that have pipped look exactly alike. Like they are from the same mother. It's easy to tell, because the shells are varying shades of light brown.
