Not really. But late last night, there were 6 pips visible on eggs, and a couple wobbling eggs. The egg from yesterday's post took a vacation and is just now starting to work on it's escape. A brown egg made very fast progress yesterday into the evening, and I expected it to be the first open this morning. Nope, she's resting and here these two were as a delightful morning surprise. Fingers crossed for the rest! We'll keep you posted!
