    Looks like today is the day. We got several wet Royal Palms and a few Bourbon Reds that we slipped under her hatching today. Whoo Hoo !!!

    Will do. She has a bunch of eggs under her. I work all weekend but she should be off the nest with them by Monday so I can get a few pics.

    I saw no unhatched eggs in the nest this afternoon and I counted 8 Royal Palms, 4 Nargs, and 1 Bourbon Red and all were very active. I took a couple of pics with cell phone but they are not good enough to post. I will take the good camera out tomorrow and get pics up.
