In Reply to: I SAW A HEAD!!!!!!! posted by IcedGoddess on May 13, 2003 at 11:32:49:

First, Congrats on your new 'pips', IcedGoddess!
But I have a question for everyone....
Last year I had two little noses poke out of a couple of eggs, but they tucked themselves back in, and never came back out!
The slices they made in the shells were large enough for them to get out of, but, after waiting a recommended 48 hours, I opened the slices a bit more and found both of these babies had died.
One breeder told me that he routinely makes larger slices in the shells once he is sure he has seen a head poke out, and will sometimes actually slice the shell in half.
What are your thoughts?
Thanks!
M!
