    Thank you so much! The 2 eggs that I am worried about have a crack in the shell and I can see their beaks, but they haven't done anything different for the past 15 hours. And they don't talk very often, but when they do it is loud and frantic.

    Lovely work. When I can't sleep, I often read. I find if I draw it has the opposite effect and I just stay up all night, but reading tends to help me relax.


    Yay! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Question - is there a setting somewhere to make it put photos/smilies in where the cursor is, not at the top of the page? Most annoying to drag them down, especially with big photos on the screen. Am I missing something? [​IMG]

    As long as you can see em, hear em they should be ok.

    Especially if you are sure they are breathing , can see the beak.

    They can take over 24 hrs from Pip to Zip.

    You will have to use some discretion here

    When to assist?
