Good morning Bev and Doreen. Thank you for the pictures, Phoebe is busy - how long before we see the eggs hatch?

Hi Marg.. Love seeing you here and thank you ..... we are expecting the eggs to hatch between Dec.8 to Dec.12.. give or take a day or so.. usually 16-18 days after Phoebe laid her eggs..

9:40 Thank you Bev for the great coverage I love your collages Phoebe is so cute when she does the eggroll and turns herself all the way around wiggling those little tail feathersTitter too precious Red Heart
Don't Panic I'm listening to the camera tonight and there are still gusts of wind, some really shaking the nest and our dear Phoebe, I imagine her tiny talons holding onto the bottom of our nest just like the chicks will do when they winersize. Good thing she is a master nestbuilder:p
sleepy Sweet dreams Phoebe, Eggie1, Eggie2, Marg, Doreen, Bev and all those who visit here...........hug one more weekfingers crossed
10:00 Lights out, camera is off, stay safe little Phoebe your in our prayersRed Heart
