    VERY cool!!! I loved watching and I got two surprises when I watched. I thought the OTHER egg was the one hatching when, all of a sudden, poof! Here comes a baby literally popping out of the other egg! And then, come to find out, she had a little black friend waiting for her. Soooo sweet. Thanks for sharing. Has the other one made it out yet?

    Quote:Unfortunately only 3 out of 4 hatched (I haven't uploaded the "birth" video for the other one(s), I'm not sure what kind of footage the Mr. got, I was at yoga while they hatched [​IMG]). I did end up opening the fourth eggs and got some really great photos- I mean, as great as photos of an unhatched chick can get, you know? I figured it had already died, it might as well not have been in vain....a very good learning experience. I'll be posting those pictures later, if you're interested.
