    Hi I have recently had my first three chicks from the bator. But I always missed them hatching. So tonight I have four rocking and rolling. It is 11:41 pm here in Arkansas and I am going to stay up and wait [​IMG] , and wait [​IMG] , and wait.....[​IMG] Hoping to get some pics with no flash so I don't hurt their eyes.... I just keep telling my self, "don't falll asleep......" I am gonna set my egg timer for every 20 minutes in case I do fall a sleep. My granddaughter will love to see the pics.

    Here is the first one. [​IMG]

    I know right?!? I have checked on them all day.. They are still wiggling, but no chirping. I really hope they make it. I'm gonna try and check on them through the night.

    It takes a long time even if you do catch them zipping that takes long enough for you to get bored or look up at the clock and realize you just wasted 1 1/2 hours doing nothing and it still didn't hatch. I have seven baby quail and 12 more to hatch. I've caught 3 of them. Good Luck Michele
