    I am on day 21 actually just started day 22 and my eggy has still not hatched! Now I know that it can take longer but I am so tired of waiting. I know that the egg will rock or you will be able to hear a chirp. I haven't heard anything. Now, I know that not all eggs do this but can't she give me something here. I want her to hatch so bad!!!

    Now I am just worrying that there is something wrong. I saw movement before lockdown but since then when I upped the humdity it has been fluctuating an awful lot. I will catch it falling to 40 and then I will get it back up to 70, 75. I just don't know. This is killing me!!!

    Good luck! I am at the end of day 20 and I am exhausted. I feel like I've been having a baby the last three days. Hope you can tell this is my first time to incubate.

    Oh that makes me feel much better.
    Wholewheatchicken, I feel the exact same way! This is my first time incubating too. I am checking on it every five minutes. It feels that way anyway. I hope I have some good news by tomorrow.
