    There are a lot more to go, but so far, five have hatched and 1 more has pipped. We just hit day 21 at 6pm this evening, so we had some early birds!
    We are already calling this one "Owl". It's an OE and just popped out of it's shell like a jack in the box when we weren't looking:

    The other four have been Blue Andalusians, but I'll only inflict a picture of the first one out on you. [​IMG]

    Getting a little nervous now-- six have hatched so far and we are way into day 21. There are 18 left in that one incubator and none of them are pipped! I hate this part--where you know you have to be patient, but you can feel the clock ticking away. [​IMG] I figure I'll give them all until at least Sunday, then I'll freak out. [​IMG]

    I love the name Owl [​IMG] I have a Fav chick that we've named Pigeon because my boyfriend thinks it looks like one... Although now that she's getting older he says she looks more like a Grouse [​IMG] LOL
