    wow! congrats! I wish mine would hatch early!
    I have a single egg in the bator(3 others didn't make it [​IMG]) But it's a late one! day 25, no pips, but he/she is wiggling quite a lot! Must be a good sign. I can't wait to hear mine peep at me! [​IMG]
    Good luck!!! [​IMG]

    So there's more than 1 peeping at me now & there's a small crack in one of the eggs so I spose I might have had my temps a bit on the high side. Wondering how long usually between when they start peeping and when they pip cuz that air sac doesn't seem like it could sustain them for too long.

    I'm just in awe! It really is amazing!!! One thing I cant figure out and I've searched a fiddled but can't figure out how to update the heading of my thread. Also cant figure how to respond to one particular post within a thread. Kinda computer illiterate but am learning! More importantly there are 2 more pipping!!!
