    Okay, and ulcer may be exaggerating, but I do feel sick to my stomach.
    On day eighteen I saw one of the two eggs that were still developing move inside. Now it is day 21 for my eggs, and nothing! Crazy me, I am even clucking at them to encourage the little ones!
    They are bantam blue laced red wyandottes. You guys are the experts, [​IMG] can you guys make them hatch for me today?

    [​IMG] I'm halfway through Day 20 with one egg and it hasn't pipped. Yep, if I still had any real fingernails, they'd be gone by now.

    [​IMG] Are they supposed to pip on day 20!

    The panic has set in!

    This is my first time incubating.

    Some do pip on Day 20, but most on Day 21, so don't panic! My Barred Rocks usually are about 1/3 hatched by the time Day 21 comes around, but when I do Blue Orps, they take their sweet time.

    Nothing but quiet in my incubator!

    Should I be hearing peeping? Are the eggs supposed to be rocking?
    Aren't there supposed to be some signs of life? [​IMG]

    Take a deep breath, Josie!!! Not hearing or seeing anything yet doesn't mean anything at all. These little stinkers take a great deal of delight in keeping us guessing. I'm sure you will see some signs of life soon.
