    If you watched my other video (dark, with flashlight) this is out of the same group of babies. That baby was actually dead when I got home that afternoon and drug out of the box. [​IMG] So I took out the remaining two eggs that the mothers were no longer sitting on and put them in my garage under a heat lamp in a pantry box (best I had in a short time). They were moving around and chirping so I knew it would be soon.

    Friday, one had hatched while I was at work and yesterday morning I caught one right in the process. Both babies are doing great!! I'm going to move them out with the rest of the crew once they get their strength up.
