    ok this is just the coolest thing ever!!! We just sat & watched the next chick hatch. We got to see him breaking the shell all around & then popping it off of him & popping out. So neat!!!!!!!!!!

    the dc said the first 4 are going to be named Snap, Crackle, Pop & Boom because they are born on the 4th of July. [​IMG]

    I have 2 lonely turkeys in the incubator right now over due to hatch. I wish they would go snap, crackle, & pop. One has attempted to pip, but I don't see the beak just yet. ARRRG!!!!!!!!! :mad:

    Good luck on your hatch!!!!!! [​IMG]
