I have pips a few internal and a few outside.


I put in 4 eggs from my A&M's and 2 have an internal pip and I can hear them peeping


The ones that I bought from Monarch 2 pips I can see, they aren't peeping, but they are very busy. I have one of hers that is rockin and rollen


This is day 17 so I have been holding my breath lol I will let you know how it goes and get pics.

I'm so excited and this is perfect because I just started my vacation today and don't have to go back to work till sunday

well I have no babies
I had about 4 just hatched and many pips and we had a really bad thunder storm. Our electric went out and even though I tried everything to keep them warm, they died. Our electric was out 22 hours, the ones that were hatched I tried so hard to keep warm, I wrapped blankets around the incubator and set a propane heater as close as I dared. I tried using my own body heat and in the end I just cried as they died. The pips stopped and the babies never hatched, I lost all of Monarchs and my 2 chicken eggs. I'm pretty sure that Sam's eggs are gone too, I am leavin them in for now, because they hadn't been in the 'bator even a week yet so maybe.

On top of eveything else, 2 of my 5 dogs(these are my children) somehow escaped the fence and were missing at least 13 hours. Part of this time was during the horrid storm that was breaking branches off that were fist size and throwing them around like they were leaves. I was so upset that the tears just wouldn't stop.

Now I need a lift me up so I can be a little happy on this horrid vacation. Saturday is my last vacation day, and I haven't enjoyed myself yet. anybody have anything happy to share with me?
