    This is day 6 and we have definite movement in one of the eggs! I'm so excited. :) I just took video and posted it to our blog at http://oureggs.blogspot.com.

    Of course now my problem is going to be what to do if only one of the eggs makes it. I see an emergency run to a farm in my near feature. :)

    Woot!! That's excellent! I [​IMG] candling. If it were that easy to see a developing human embryo, I would probably have a dozen children, just so I could watch them grow inside my belly. [​IMG]

    Awesome NoVa!! I'm on day 6 as well. 11 were moving and the 12th had a definate bloodring. This is my first hatch. How exciting though!!! I just think it's amazing to actually watch the babies grown and "swim" around in the eggs.

    Yup, the urge to just stand there and watch the little guy swim around is almost overwhelming. You know, I have the horrible premonition that this is a little guy and he's going to end up just another pet--like the four dogs and three cats we already have. [​IMG] Right now, though, I don't care. [​IMG]
