    I have 12 good eggs due to hatch tomorrow around noon i think since thats about what time i set them in the incubator but so far i havent seen any pip holes but i have seen the eggs just a rocking back and forth I hope they hatch im getting really tired of putting 41 eggs in the incubator and in the end none hatch or only 5 out of 41 its depressing!

    Good luck! I set 42 shipped eggs. 8 (more likely 7 good) of the 24 chicken eggs went into lockdown. 1 hatched day 20, 1 hatched in the middle of the night before day 21, and 1 is attempting to hatch now. No other pips but I'm crossing my fingers! 9 of the 18 guineas will go into lockdown in a few days.

    I recently hatched two chickens, they hatched on day 20. There was no visible movement before, non that we saw, me and the kids were checking them constantly.They just piped and were out within about three hours from piping. It's so exciting and nerve wracking. Good luck, let us know how you get on.
