    Any Peeps. Did you candle during incubation? Bator Temp and Humidity? Check your calendar, Are you sure it's 21 days. Could take up to 23 days if you had temp fluctuations. Don't give up until 25 days. KEEP OUT OF THAT BATOR! They'll come out when they're ready!!!
    Good Luck!

    yes but very very quickly but for day 21 and hatching I recommend a wet towel or sponge.

    no pips yet you have to look reallt closley sometimes as some chicks will make the smallest marks they are not always noticable at a glance you got to search for them
