    Well ,
    Today is day 21 and nothing is happening really - but i am not worried because it always takes longer in a incubator ...

    The hole is really big now in one of the japanese egg and you can see a bit of the chick and some kind of liquid ...
    Does everything sound and look ok ?
    How long do you think it will take now ?

    That looks pretty normal as long as he is still peeping and everything. Just be sure not to keep opening the incubator otherwise you will mess up the humitiy then it will be extremely hard if not impossible for the chick to get out. I always have that problem, i usually have to help my chickens out of their eggs. I wouldn't suggest that though, its very tricky.

    Humidity is at 60% and have not been in incubator since day 18 (Took that picture through the plastic)
    He wobbles a bit and pecks a bit then there is nothing for around an hour then he does it again ...
    I think he might be out tomorrow mourning (Hopefully)

    Looking good! As to how long until it is out, not a clue. It depends on alot of variables, but if I had to guess I would say it will be out by tonight. Good Luck!!! [​IMG]

    Oh and just keep an eye on the membrane, make sure it's not sticking or drying out, I believe most people have their humidity up to 70% the last few days.

    I'd say that looks just like how mine looked about half way through their hatching time. I think it should be fine as long as it doesn't appear to be getting weaker. Listen for chirps [​IMG]
