  • Mike and Polly babies have hatched!!!

    What better way to end a Birthday than to have 2 of my "Project" eggs hatch? I opened up the incubator and was so excited that I almost dropped it. Finally, FINALLY these eggs have hatched.

    I was expecting a few more spots, but I'm not by any means disappointed. These guys are NOT for sale... I'm too interested to see how they turn out to be. (Plus, I consider it a minor miracle that they're alive after my old German Shepard flipped the incubator during the move!!!)

    One thing that did catch my eye, though was... suprisingly... their tails. Very cool tail pattern. Very thin stripe with a funky "starburst"-type pattern on each side. It's hard to describe, but I've attached a pic. It was the first thing I noticed when I popped open the incubator. ("Where the heck did those stripe-y tails come from?") Kind of funky... I hope they keep the pattern!

      That is a sweet tail pattern. Almost looks like several swords laying on top of each other.

                  Isn't breeding season great? Nothing beats checking the lay box and finding two perfect eggs. (Except maybe when those eggs hatch! Lol.)

                  Oh, I decided to name the babies "Lucky" and "Shamrock".
