    This is my first time incubating eggs and they're hatching! I noticed the first pip last night (day 19). This morning I woke up and went to check on the eggs right away and found THIS. There are several other pips and I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of more babies. I'm trying not to hover over the incubator all day but it's so hard. I wanna actually see it happen, ya know? It's slow torture but so exciting! :D

    I can only imagine your excitement! I think I would have to take a few days off of work to hover! Congrats!

    Congrats on your hatcher hope you have some more real soon :celebrate Its hard but the pull of the incubator will have you hovering without a doubt. I get a chair and cushion to watch to save my legs. Keep checking regular and you should see one hatch, It really is a remarkable thing to watch how they emerge from the egg.

    Good luck with the rest of your hatch :fl
