    Okay, at 1:30 a.m. I had 2 pips, at 8 a.m. I've got 5 pips & 1 of those is zipping. HURRAYY !!!!!!!!!!! There is only 7 eggs in there so this is a great sign ! I lost one early on. I'm so proud. This is my test batch of my mutts. Light Brahmas x BR. Okay gotta go see whats happening now. I'm taking pics but won't be able to post them today my printer is still broken, but I will post them soon !

    Yes it is very exciting. 2 out now, 3 pipped, & 2 with no action so far. Those little critters are really kinda butt ugly when they first hatch. Sure hope they will pretty up some when they dry and fluff up a bit ! They will, won't they?

    Update: 4 now hatched out, 1 more zipping as I type, 2 still nothing. I can tell the daddy is a light Brahma some of them have the feathered legs going on. Mostly they so far seem to look like their BR mommies. Except one that has a mask on its face. I can't wait to show so pics. But I will have to go somewhere tomorrow or Tuesday to do that. Sorry
