    Well i was wrong she hatched them all!!! last baby hatched
    yesterday but he is so small i moved him to another pair that
    just started hatching yesterday (more his size compared to his
    clutchmates)Shes doing a great job with them and her mate is
    doing his part. Thanks its nice to know theres a place for us to
    go for that much needed advice. Tim
