First question, do they "always" hatch out the top facing part of the egg?
Second, if an egg that looked normal yesterday (some even a few hours ago), now has a darker almost wet looking, but dry feeling spot, is this maybe where the hatchling is working with his egg tooth? (it's definately coming through from the inside, because it feels like normal on the outside, cept maybe a tad softer.)
Lastly, WHEN WILL THEY COME OUT!!!!!???? LOL
I know the last question is impossible to answer;)

But I just checked the 12 good eggs pretty closely, and about 8 of them now have the "wet-looking" dots, some on the top, a couple on the bottom part of the egg. (no, i didn't turn the eggs, i lifted them up) and today is day 60.

any idea's if these are signs or know of any other "signs" of impending pip You could add?
