    I saw the coolest thing when i checked on my eggs this morning. One egg was moving around!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing else but a perfect egg moving... My Husband thinks it's the coolest thing...

    So now how long from the baby moving around and wiggling around until I get a pip?[​IMG]

    Chicks usually don't pip the egg til day 20 if all conditions have been perfect, meaning the temps and humidity but nothing is set in stone for peepers...

    When they pip it can take up to 24 hours for them to zip out of the shell...sit on your hands!....
