    Hi all!
    We just put them in the hatcher last night at day 18, this morning we already had one hatched! Looks like a light one! Day 19 no less, is that normal?
    No other pips yet, but here's hoping they start popping like popcorn in there =]
    Thanks!

    Kewl!

    Keep us posted!
    I was shocked when the kids came in and said "one hatched!" I wasn't expecting them on day 19...(normal-abnormal?) , but hopefully thats a good thing and the rest will be ok!
    Thanks!
