It's day 21 but I haven't seen any pipping or heard any peeping from the eggs.
Should I be worried?
I also really jut need moral support, this is my first time, and my hens first time, hatching eggs.
My broody's on day 20, lol. I'm wearing ruts in the floor. Your chicks should hatch soon, might take a couple of extra days. If you're really worried about it, candle the eggs. You can use a really good flashlight if you don't have a candler. You could also check them in a bowl of warm water, but if they're are any pips, the chicks will drown.
I'm so anxious my broody wants to bit me because I lift her up to check the eggs almost every ten minutes!!
There are still no pips. I'm pretty sure one pipped internally.
It's day 22. Should I make a artificial pip?
