    I have 3 pipped eggs that the shell is pushed outwards. The chicks are peeping away loudly, and mama is talking to them. However lastnight, I kept the hamper next to my bed so I could listen and look over every now and then. Everytime an egg chirped, she would lift up move the eggs around, and cluck. She moved her eggs 3 times last night around the hamper! She's going insane that they haven't hatched yet. When they chirp, she's freaking out and moving them around the hamper to another nest she builds. As of this morning, she's sitting tight, and babies are still peeping. She's talking back but not moving around like last night. Isn't she removing humidity when she get's up?

    Quote:Thank you! She must have gave birth to that chick, because the eggs had no zips this morning! [​IMG] I was sure I wouldn't get a hatch till tonight. The chick is peeping and walking under mama's tush. It's drying fast too.
