We have an egg starting to hatch!! Even though the peep is low, I could hear it through the closed bedroom door in our kitchen. I had just checked the eggs several times this morning, and nothing was happening. Now, lo and behold, we have our first egg starting to hatch!
BUT I have to get ready for work now.
Luckily, hubby is on day shift this week due to a class he is taking, so he will be home by 5:00 at the latest. The egg will only be alone for about 4 hours. Hopefully the little bugger will hatch by tonight, and it will be a healthy chick. I've read that guineas can take up to 2 days to hatch. And under no circumstances are we to help it hatch. I've got that burned into my brain from all my reading.
I'm so excited... I sure wish I could stay home and watch it hatch, but hopefully one of the other eggs will give me that opportunity.
