    Here are all the new babies. We got 12 total and one is still trying. And then we have 13 eggs that havent piped but were still hoping. And one is still in the bator drying as it just hatched thirty mins ago. We are so excited. We didnt expect our first hatch to turn out so well. We would have been happy with one. [​IMG]

    my wife is so excited she has barely left the bator. Shes 7 months pregnant so shes been complaining about her feet. Which means she has only left the bator to eat and to guilt me into giving her foot rubs

    We got two more last night. No more pips in the remaining 12 eggs but were gonna give them a few days before we trash them.
