    [​IMG] It's been a long journey.....with a big loss of the first 120 to a power outage. BUT....The little Bobs started poppin' open about 3 hours ago. Several are out and about..........most of the eggs have pips [​IMG] [​IMG] They don't waste any time when one crawls outta that shell before they go munching on the fresh birthing fluid, do they?

    YAY! I am waiting for my GG bobs to hatch as well. I candled them yesterday due to my worry since I am on day 24, but they looked fine in there. Movement was seen and all that jazz so I am looking for Bobs in the next 36 hours I have 24 eggs waiting to POP [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] Yessir, about 40 sumthin kernels done popped so far. Still have lots of pips, and 3 or so zipping right now. Got the dry ones in the brooder, and they seem content. I'm fixin' to go to bed, and spend the day with them tomorrow........
