    I woke up about 30 minutes ago to some serious peeping. Usually I can sleep through something like that, but this one little peeper sounded like it was a week or two old and announcing to the world it's arrival. Still is, the little girl( [​IMG] ) has got some lungs to her.

    LOL. I had to research pictures of a Mottle Java, because they look far different than what I expected. She ( [​IMG] ) is almost all white with just a few black points on her. Turns out that's what she( [​IMG] ) is suppose to look like. Go figure, that a breed that is mostly black would hatch out mostly white. [​IMG]

    I've got several other pips, and a couple zipping(right?). Oh I'm so excited, this clutch is going to be Silver Grey Dorkings and Mottled Javas.

    Oh, I'm so excited. I lost the large(!) majority of my earlier hatches this year due to incorrect temps from incorrect thermometers, but candling has led me to believe that all the eggs are now dark and healthy.

    Wish the little guys well! It's the start to my breeding program, I need them happy, healthy and strong! And we all know how fragile the little things are.

    [​IMG] She is still peeping at different levels(mostly loud) and in different patterns. It almost sounds like I hatched out a song bird and not just a heritage chick. LOL

    ooo, hooray for you!

    I have a bator full of Mottled Javas, and I'm so pleased with what I saw when I candled last night. They were shipped from quite a ways, too.

    Can't wait to see pics!!
