    I went to load more eggs into my hatcher, and was suprised to see a pip on an egg that just started day 19?!? Is this okay? I've never had one pip so early!

    I did once, a Speckled Sussex of all things. Still, it may hatch on Day 20. Mine pipped then waited a long time before making the push to freedom.

    Well, I think I'll be naming this little guy Speedy! Came home from work around 5:30p and he was out and pretty dry. Day 20 starts at 11pm, I believe. He seems very healthy, though lonely. I hope someone else hatches soon... I only have one other egg from his batch, then the next batch are Australorps due to hatch in about 3 days.

    Here's Speedy

    Speedy is just adorable. Congrats. Hope to see pics of more babies when they hatch.
