Three of the eggs are forming a 'chalky' band around them. This is a sign of fertility, but it is known for eggs to do this whether fertile or not, so not a definite sign! Keep those fingers crossed!

8-11 weeks!!! We will all be paced out by then so I suggest we start pacing if and when any pip!

For now... watch this:

*If* they hatch, I'm sure it'll be within 10 weeks! WOW! 10 weeks until you go to WDW, I bet this will be the slowest 10 weeks of our lives, myself waiting for 'granchildren' and you waiting for WDW!
Just showed dad the chalkyness and Actually spotted there are 4, one not chalking up as much as the others just yet!:wiggle:
