some on YouTube chat are saying they think it hatched before midnight last night, which would make it a Valentine baby,,,if you scroll back on the video to about 11:28 last night you can get small glimpses of black when she moves around, this shot is at 11:28:10, watch under her chest when she turns around

Thank you for this, Deb. I was just trying to figure out how many days it’s been since the second egg was laid.
