    I took 29 eggs off the turner. nh reds, barred rocks, silkies and welsummers and some mixed flock of my own. I noticed this morning when I candled some were really close to the airsac or in it. I heard peeping tonight and saw one barred rock was just starting to pip with just a piece of a egg shell starting to come off. I've never pipped this early should I be ready. I'm thinking I could be off but did not think so. We put them in may 12 in the afternoon. I just checked so I guess we are on day 19.
