    OMG I'm so excited, I have a pip!!![​IMG] I had lost all hope thinking my babies died, but I have a pip! I do have a question though, the pip is there but I don't hear peeping and the shell is still over the pip,it hasn't broken away, so are we stilll good to go?!?! Temp is 99.7 and humudity is between 65-67%! Any input is welcome since I'm a first timer! [​IMG]

    Hi Holly. My first hatch too! I have 2 pips. The shell is still over the hole on one and pushed away ever so slightly on the other. I can hear 1 cheeping! Isn't this exciting? Good luck and keep me posted. I am leaving to go to town here soon, but I hope to have more pips or cheeping when I come home. [​IMG]

    I know! You too! I text messaged my DH a picture of the egg that has the hole in it. He thinks I am a little nutty! However he loves me enough to call me and tell me how cool it was. Besides, he built the bator, so he is my enabler!

    Congratulations!!! It sounds like everuthing is right on track. I just completed my 3rd hatch and I got 100% hatch rate and I know the feeling of being somwhat anxious trying to wait for them to hatch.
