    Do they start cheeping in their eggs on day 21 or 22? I am afraid they are dead because in 2 hours it will be day 22 and nothing is happening? [​IMG]

    Quote:It varies depending on if you use a fan or not.. It depends on your temps. If you maintained it around 100 Degrees ..

    My Fan and Turner Inc. hatched a day 1/2 sooner.. I have another without fan and they are just now hatching and pipping on day 21.. But by the way most eggs look .. I'm gong to have some late ones..

    So give them a few days..

    I hold one up to my ear and listen for movement inside.. If one is in there it usually making a little noise.. If it's close to pipping you can hear a cheep..
