On Friday morning one of my eggs pipped, Saturday morning there had been no change, within half an hour a lil baby was half way out of a different egg, by the time I had a shower he was sat looking at me!
The first egg finally hatched Sunday morning but he still has his yolk sac. He is currently back in the incubator on some damp kitchen roll until it goes.
Introducing my first ever baby Hercs!!

Thanks guys :)

I have one more egg from this clutch in the incubator but I am pretty sure it is no good, and one week later Jazz laid one egg, so if that one is any good it shouldn't be too long now.
The babies yolk sac is still out, he has had regular baths and has had a drink each time. I have him on the torty table but within a smaller container to help keep him clean. He is on a bit of old towel for grip and I have been putting vaseline on the yolk sac to stop it sticking to anything.
