    I am so excited to see 2 of my 13 eggs rolling around a bit in the incubator! How soon should I expect babies? I keep checking back every few minutes, I don't want to miss anything! [​IMG]

    Quote:yes they could pop right out or it could be hours..... some chicks will pip & then tak 12 hrs. to zip or some times longer.... The joke here is that if I'm watching & it looks like it's going to zip it isn't until I look the other way like to use the bathroom that I'll come back & zip it's out. LOL [​IMG] anyway good luck with the hatch & keep giving updates k?
