    I am freaking out!!

    I've been watching and waiting and waiting and waiting, and
    I've seen no signs of a chick.
    This is so nerve wrecking.

    How do ya'll deal with the pressures of waiting??

    I can imagine how nervous you are. Just come on the board and answer every single post till your done. That should hold you till hatch time.

    On my hatch that just happened, a pip occurred late on Day 20, but the others pipped about 3-4 a.m. on Day 21.

    I can't see movement, as chicken little is sitting on my/her/bought eggs...

    fingers crossed for you and your chicks.

    They may end up being a day or 2 late if your temps were just a tad low. Give them some time. [​IMG]
