    Then no progress over night. Should I be worried??

    I was very surprised to see a pip yesterday (day 20) around noon, but even more surprised, and worried, there was no visible progress over night.

    Oh these are pure bred Ameraucanas.

    Patience and no opening the bator. 24 hours and longer from pips to zipping out.

I expected mine to be late I had a 14 hour power outage on day 10 so I feel lucky to have 29 still alive out of 36. candled at 14 days and 18 days they were a little behind but still growing. I can hear them talking right now. so exciting its as good as christmas with out all the spending!!!! [​IMG]
