    yep...i knew i wasn't crazy, LOL...only day 19.......

    i've got 2 that are pipping. one that i can see (#8), just one little crack. [​IMG]

    well....they are flat on the bator floor.

    and one just looked like was was pipping on the bottom. but i think we're ok.

    #8 isn't pipping anymore, no movement, no nothing...but i'll stay hopeful [​IMG]

    then i have 1 more. can't see the # on the egg, but shes been going at it all morning...chirping away...moving...working that beak around to get that whole going.


    ok...we're going to a birthday party...thank god, something to get me away from the bator! LOL

    if it were me, I would... but I'm just telling you that so you wouldn't feel bad for wanting to step in [​IMG] It's probably wrong the wrong answer though.

    My update: still nothing [​IMG] And here I thought I'd be having an early hatch w/ my temp being high. I hope it hatches!!
