You may not see or hear anything yet for a few days. Depending on how your temp has been, thay may hatch a little early or a little late. No worries yet
It's day 18 for me and i am excited.
What are you hatching? Best of luck!!!!

RIR's Well at least that is what the lady from the local farmers market told me they were. I don't really mind what kind they are, just as long as they are healthy. We have never had chickens before and it has been a great learning experience for my daughters. we are just waiting and waiting and waiting. Thanks for the encouragement.

RIR's Well at least that is what the lady from the local farmers market told me they were. I don't really mind what kind they are, just as long as they are healthy.

The best hatch I have had (in my limited experience), was my very first one. It was 30 eggs from the local Farmer's Market, and I had a great variety of chicks! I loved that hatch! Some starting chirping on Day 19, and they were all out and fluffy on or before day 21. I gave all those chicks to an older lady who had lost her flock to predators. She adores them.

Good luck to you on your first hatch!
