    My little lone egg has been piping since around noon today. So far we have a big triangle that has lifted away from the egg. When I shine my flashlight in there I can see a little chickie move!! A big long crack runs off to one side. My computer is right next to the hatcher, I keep glancing over. GO chickie GO!!!
