    Ok so we just hatched our first batch of eggs.(It went fairly well BTW;)) I noticed that my kids would come in every day and ask if we had any new "SLIMEYS" We did a staggerd hatch so they did this for a week. I now call the new hatchers slimeys as well. I think we all should start this trend [​IMG]

    now to clarify they are only "slimeys" untill they dry out then they are "peeps" They stay peeps untill they start to cluck then they are "Chick-chick-chick-chickens!!!!"
