The "dud" egg pipped today!

Have a broody bantam that has been sitting in two eggs for nearly 3 weeks. I candled the eggs weekly and one appeared to be a dud so I wrote "ND" on it and left it in the nest.

Yesterday I decided to remove it and took it in the house, then after 20 minutes or so decided to check "one more time". I set it in a bowl on the counter to watch for movement and it wiggled! Today it pipped! I guess the ND didn't stand for "not developing" it actually meant "not dead"!

Very excited, God willing I think they will hatch tonight! Will be up super early to see what I got, I should have a pretty good idea of the genders.
